updating a classic to 5.1_STABLE?

I have a sparc classic running 4.0_STABLE, and it's been quite
satisfactory.  But it can't build the new perl (runs out of swap), and
I'd like to be able to use binary packages, and it seems there aren't
recent ones for 4 (well, because 4 is old).

So I am wondering about updating to 5.1_STABLE, and if people think
that's a safe thing to do - I have run 5 on i386, amd64 and sparc64, but
not such a low-memory (24MB) machine.

Or am I better off with the netbsd-6 branch?

NetBSD 4.0_STABLE (GENERIC) #0: (fairly recent)
