If you have a pretty good idea of when the tag was made, and assuming you 
the entire codebase at the same time, you can do this: 

1. check out the tag
2. make an educated guess about when the tag was made; let's call this dateGuess
3. do 'cvs -nq up -D"dateGuess"'
4. do a manual binary search, changing dateGuess until 'cvs -nq up' returns 

As you get closer to the actual date, the number of changed files should 
helping you narrow down your search.
