Default Binary Packages - which source for 5.1.1

I'm looking to build an OpenBox desktop using precompiled binaries and it looks like there are many choices as to the PKG_PATH (5.0, 5.0.2, 5.1 etc.) Interestingly the 5.1 packages are 2011Q1 while the 5.0.2 packages are 2011Q3.

It looks like 5.1.1 is a 5.1.0 patched for Bind. Would I have a better chance of success at a working desktop installing a patched 5.0.2? Another way to rephrase my question, what is the OpenBSD -Release, FreeBSD release equivalent in NetBSD?

I prefer to use precompiled binary packages if possible.
