No.  CVSNT (GPL/Free, linux/mac/unix/win - just like CVS) has this
though - see the "chacl" command.  Note: if you are using CVSNT there is
a separate newsgroup.

If for some reason you cannot upgrade, in CVS 1.11 sources apparently
there is a perl script in the contrib directory that provides some of
these features.

One of the reasons why there are "two projects" is that these sort of
features are considered by some people to not "belong" in CVS, hence why
there is CVSNT for those who believe that SCM should do more, like:
failsafe audit, commit identifiers, change sets/user defined commit
identifiers, merge tracking etc...
