I would install a subversion client on one machine and use it to get
snapshots of the foreign library.  I would then import these snapshot
on a CVS vendor branch, just as if they were released tarballs.  I
don't know what a svn sandbox looks like, you may need to add some
"-I" options to your cvs import command to skip the svn metadata.

Basically, you handle the external library like any third-party
source, including generating occasional patches to send upstream.
