when you finish an installation, you'll very often have to issue the
'rehash' command, which tells your csh to reread the $PATH which is set in
if you didn't do this, you'll probably see the command 'magically' appear
after your next boot or if you open another term and su to root.
you do have to run this command as root, btw. ;)

try 'pkg_info | grep -i cvsup' to see if you do have the program installed.
and, as root, 'echo $PATH'

my first guess would be the 'rehash'. further guesses would depend upon
what you get from pkg_info and $PATH.
