The best way to handle your specific problem is to not put binaries in
your source control system.  Assuming that's not an option for whatever
reason, your best bet is probably to define a module (in the
CVSROOT/modules file) that excludes those directories.  Something like:

        proj-src -a !proj/debug !proj/release proj
