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