Well, AFAIK there is JCvs and the NetBeans CVS module.

JCVS did not have an Apache-compatible license, but I've heard that the 
author thought of changing it, but I still don't know.

What I would suggest is the NetBeans CVS library, as:
  - it's license compatible
  - it has a good user base (Netbeans users)
  - it has a community around it

If you look on the Netbeans site you will find the project page of this 
library with instructions on how to use it standalone.

It would be great if Ant used it :-D
