Lack of hardware ressources. 5.0.2 packages runs on 5.1, but 5.1 packages
may not run on 5.0.2, so as we can't build both we build for 5.0.2.

There has been an attempt to provide packages for both 5.0.2 and 5.1.
5.1_2011Q1 directories should probably be killed now.

As there's no packages built for 5.1 I'm not sure there should be a 5.1
symlink at all.
