Try this:

$ export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous anoncvs gnome org:/cvs/gnome
$ cvs login
(Logging in to anonymous anoncvs gnome org)
CVS password: [just hit enter here]
$ cvs checkout [package of your choice]

Your line above looks like the CVS should be cvs and the syntax is slightly
off (no spaces around the "=").  There is no password for cvs login on the
gnome site.
