I compile and install NetBSD-current almost daily on my desktop at home.
I've got to fix problems occasionally but it works fine most of the time.
Remember that NetBSD-current is "bleeding edge" OpenSource software. And
users which find and report build problems and other bugs are an important
part of such a project because they actually *are* the quality testers.
If that scheme doesn't work for you I would suggest to use one of NetBSD's

This is most likely caused by inconsistent build options. You must either
use "-U" in both of the above "./build.sh" commands or in none of them.
