Building the entire userland poses a number of difficulties, especially
when trying to make the big jump that you are doing, i.e., 1.5.1 -> 1.5U.
It's generally much easier to install a snapshot. Otherwise, there may be
little dependencies here and there that you will have to resolve manually.
If your objective is to learn how the system works, then look at mtree,
read the makefiles, read /usr/src/UPDATING, and perhaps ask for some
assistance on netbsd-help and current-users.
