I believe ViewCVS has this ability, though it's disabled by default.

Please explain what you mean by "a full content search".

if you mean you want a collated set of, reverse chronological listed,
comments cvs2cl[1] is the tool I use for that.

if you mean how has a line in a file changed over history ... IFAIK you
would have to build your own tool using the output of:
`cvs annotate -r` 
`cvs diff <diff options> -rolder_rev -rold_rev` 

also note that if you are running CVSNT on windows (included
CVSNT) may have similar capabilities.
