OpenBSD 5.0 was tagged in CVS a month ago:

Before every -release, effort is moved from providing selected snapshot packages to building all packages for the release. I suspect this is why the directories are empty.

If you cannot wait for packages to reappear, you can build from the ports tree. However, reviewing Section 15.4.1 of the FAQ is in order. Not knowing how old your installation of -current is, downloading the ports tree today may not result in a synchronized tree. If you must build ports today, install or update to a new snapshot first.
