MetaCVS has some support for such things.
It guesses operations by looking at inode numbers and by comparing
the textual content (using things like word-frequencies).
It of course only works in simple enough cases, but it's surprisingly
effective when doing a `mcvs import' of some vendor code and the vendor
has moved some files around in the new version.
