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.

I'm afraid that without extra information nobody will be able to understand or fix your problem. A PR with 
the "" command line, the contents of "/etc/mk.conf" and the output of 
"printenv" would be a good start.

I've already posted those before, so before I do it again I'm going to
try the build line from releng. Do you know what's in make.conf?

No, not exactly. But this line worked for me today:

        ./ -O /path/to/objdir -u -U -j 16 -m i386 release

You might want to prefix this with "MAKECONF=/foo" to make your sure that your "/etc/mk.conf" is 
*not* used. You should also make sure that you don't set things like "CFLAGS", "LDFLAGS" etc. in 
your shell environment.

I got it to work with the full build line from the autobuild. It used to
work without that line. In fact, I get it to work without -O on my i386
system, but not on my amd64 system.

I figure I'll just use the line with -O and not worry about it.

Thanks for the suggestions. It finally got me successfully building.
