Yes, add a file called '.cvsignore' to each directory
containing files you want cvs to ignore. By add, I mean
actually add to the repository, not just your local copy.
Each .cvsignore file should contain a list of files to ignore.
You can use shell wildcards in the filenames.

This is actually a very good idea, a properly configured
tree shouldn't have any '?' files during processing. That
way, '?' files can be used as indications of problems --
usually forgetting to 'cvs add' a new file.
