The story is:
1.) You are reading the wrong manual page. Here is the correct one:
And it doesn't mention the "-r" option with isn't present in NetBSD 5.1
as you already found out.
2.) The OpenSSH version distributed with NetBSD-current (5.6) is newer
than the version in NetBSD 5.1 (5.0) and therefore supports the
"-r" option for sftp(1).
3.) You could use either "scp -r ..." or "rsync -r ..." to transfer
complete directory trees over an SSH connection.
