To get the real errors, you can comment out the line(s) like:

   open(STDERR, '>/dev/null'); # rlog may complain ...

...around line 2130 (assuming you're using FreeBSD-CVSweb 2.0.6) in
cvsweb.cgi and watch your web server error log while clicking the
problematic dir link.

Yep, I guess this is a permissions issue.  Your web server user needs to
be able at least to read the files in the repository.  The files INSTALL
and cvsweb.conf contain more hints.
