good write-up...
   I've been playing with this problem this week and my hack is to  
have compartmentalized CVSROOTS.  So our cvsnt can use winbind to  
authenticate and our Apache can use mod_auth_pam for winbind auth  
access to different viewvc servers (virtual servers).   While this  
isn't as cool as a single server signon following the NTFS acls, it  
does get me close as we have a separate CVSroot for highly sensitive  
material, and a general public one that everyone can use.
