No. And, as others have noted, this doesn't scale well; RCS won't
replicate your directory structure. CVS does, but it is more cumbersome
to use for small projects.

If you really want this behaviour, though, just `ln -s ~/RCS` in each
directory you wish to share the RCS path.

For most applications, though, you're better off with a local RCS
directory; it facilitates backups and shared access much better.
