you don't tell CVS if a file is binary or not when you commit - you do it 
when you add/import the file. *nix has the "file" command that returns the 
file type checking the file content - don't know if you can use it in a 
trigger to force the binary flag when adding a file. Anyway, automatic 
detection can fail.

WinCVS already has an internal check you can activate on import to check the 
type of files being added - it's not 100% perfect.
