(I don't see any reason to run 5.1 release instead of head of netbsd-5,
but I don't think that matters in this case.)

Just as a personal answer to this question, it is because netbsd-5 does
not build for me. I have complained and filed prs ...

Which PRs are those?

5.1.0 build. 5 does not.

I think it is matter for not being able to reproduce it. The last
two auto builds worked fine:

And I personally build NetBSD/i386 from the "netbsd-5" branch this
morning which worked without problems.

Perhaps I gave up after no one could reproduce the issue and never filed
a PR. Especially since the thread degenerated into something that wasn't
addressing my problem.

My source tree is NFS mounted. I remember when null mounts would break
the build in the past. I wonder if that's the difference in my setup.
