I don't think so.  It's a fairly standard perl script that uses normal
CVS commands to examine the files.  It does need direct access to the
repository, but that's only to find the files to be checked, it doesn't
directly access the contents of the repository files as far as I know. 
It runs "cvs rlog" to get the revision history for each file and then
runs "cvs co" on the "interesting" revisions (the root of the trunk and
the tip of every other branch); as long as the checkouts work, the file
is considered OK.  CVSNT is mostly compatible with CVS as far as the
command line and output go, so I'd say there's a good chance of it
working fine.  It's certainly worth a try.
