If you don't do that carefully you can easily get results that don't
work, yes...

Having the wrong version string suggests that src/sys/sys/param.h (and
maybe the rest of that directory too) either hasn't been updated since
well before 5.0 or got locked down to a specific date or revision at
some point.

Unless there's some strong reason not to I would probably just update
to the latest 5.0_STABLE (head of the netbsd-5 branch).

Be sure to use the -A option of cvs update to make sure you really get
the whole update.
