Version control in the sense of configuration management, or version 
control as in revision control, i.e. the basic storage mechanism needed 
for configuration management?

Depending on the volume of FrameMaker documents and the number of 
revisions, you can certainly use CVS. We do -- for the time being. CVS 
is not particularly well suited for binary files. If you want something 
that work in a fashion similarly to CVS, Subversion is the compelling 

Up-scale XML-based document management systems typically offer some 
FrameMaker intergration, some workflow management and some configuration 

Kind regards
