Managing only a few files in a directory tree?

Hi, folks --

  Ok, I'm old:  I used RCS in the *80s*. :-)

  I manage a suite of commercial, compiled apps in a handful of directories
in a directory tree, and each directory has one or two config files that
drive the behavior of the binaries therein.  Doing a "cvs import" seems to
import *all* files in a directory, including the binaries that really don't
benefit from being managed in CVS.  Throwing in a ton of -I's to ignore
certain files is a possibility, if somewhat ungraceful.

  What's the best way to set up a CVS module or project which holds only the
couple of config files in each directory in the tree?  What I've used works,
but is, shall we say, unpleasant. :-)
