the '-r netbsd-5' flag tell CVS to upgrade files to the netbsd-5 branch.
This is currenlty 5.1_RC3, will be 5.1_RC4. Once 5.1 is released this
branch will switch to 5.1_STABLE (what may becode 5.2). If you want the
5.1 sources, you'll have to use the netbsd-5-1-RELEASE tag instead.
If you want to track what will become 5.1.1 you'll use netbsd-5-1
