This might be a general question of general interest, so:

Visit http://releng.netbsd.org/ in your Web browser.
Select "Ticket tracking for NetBSD-5" (in this case)
Select "Show all open tickets" or, if you hav a number, enter it in the
search field.
In the former case, select the ticket from the Subject or the ticket number

In our case, you end up at 

It says, somewhere:
To generate a diff of this commit:
cvs rdiff -u -r1.18 -r1.19 src/gnu/dist/gcc4/gcc/version.c
cvs rdiff -u -r1.1.1.2 -r1.2 src/gnu/dist/gcc4/gcc/config/arm/arm.md

(Sometimes, you need to use cvs rdiff -kk -u ... to avoid expansion of 
rcsid keywords, which would not apply cleanly to a different branch of
the source tree.)

Feed those patches to your tree with the program "patch".
