You can use cvsup!  We've been trying to tell you.. turn off 
compression!  It'll either be something like '*default compress'
if you're using one of the example cvsup files, or the -z flag if you're 
using the cvsup-mirror kit or the like.

I'd try and build a cvsup-without-compression if I knew how to change 
the cvsup source.  I really don't understand the language.  Incidently, 
it makes porting the language compiler really interesting when its 
written in itself and you don't understand it. :-)
