So which repo contains expanded keywords?  If yours, then do a
recursive `sed` (or whatever) invocation on all that thousand of files
and make a single commit titled "Normalize CVS keywords".  Then merge
normally.  If the foreign repo contains expanded keywords, may be
`git rerere` might be of help -- it's specifically designed to remember
how you resolved past merge conflicts.

Still, I can't completely comprehend your situation: the foreign repo
supposedly should contain unexpanded keywords because to me, the only
sensible way to get a repo with expanded keywords is to have it
converted from the source one using some brain-dead tool; or may be you
have just done `git add .` on a CVS checkout?
