That's where cvs and ssh come in to play:

After you've finished editing on your local machine, do a cvs commit.

Then do something like:

ssh you at remotemachine "cd www/src; cvs update -dP"
ssh you at remotemachine "cd www/src; make"

So your total bandwidth consumption is the cvs commit/update
(depending on whether the cvs is remote or local), and however much it
takes ssh to send those commands over.
