That's confusing terminology. There is the "netbsd-1-5" branch,
which 1.5 was released from, and which 1.5.1 is going to be
released from, and there is the main trunk in the CVS repository
which is commonly referred to as "NetBSD-current".

It is 3.4.9, which was shipped in 1.5, but with some important
bugfixes applied. If you inspect the CHANGES-1.5.1 file (on the
netbsd-1-5 branch), you will find these two entries:
Fix machine hangs with FTP from behind a NetBSD box configured
to do NAT and FTP proxying using IPF. Fixes PR#12443.
Fix bug related to fragment cache handling in IPF.
