I do not believe that any recent version of CVS has been compiled on
OpenVMS. That said, if you have compilers for the box, there should be
nothing that prohibits you from building it yourself from sources.

1) Download the sources:

2) Unpack them using either unzip or a recent version of tar that
   understands how to do gunzip.

3) Read the README.VMS file. The script in the top-level
   directory should let you build the various things. If you run into
   problems building cvs, send e-mail to address@hidden and someone
   will try to help you out.

I hope the above is useful.
