It might make sense to add entries to CVSROOT/cvswrappers for all of
the anticipated binary files, though. That will hint cvs(1) to mark
them as -kb automagically.
Here's the list that I use on most of my CVS repositories:
*.dia -k 'b'
*.gif -k 'b'
*.ico -k 'b'
*.jpg -k 'b'
*.mo -k 'b'
*.png -k 'b'
*.tar -k 'b'
*.zip -k 'b'
*.tgz -k 'b'
