You can supposedly use 'cvs add' to add the name, and then *not* commit ;)
If you then use cvs diff, it should show up.

Alternatively, and this is probably best, checkout a new copy of the tree
(or simply do a 'cp -pPR') and diff between those two. In franctic times, it
can be a hassle to get them both up to date, but if you're just going for a
diff that adds a new file, that doesn't matter.

(I remember trying to create a good patch in the weekend of July 1st. It was
horrible, by the time an update had finished, things it had updated at the
start were already changed again :)
