Erm, building releases of different branches than the build box isn't really
supported. If you want a -current release, build it on a -current box. If you
want a -stable release, build it on a -stable box. It may work at times that
you can build -stable on -current and vice versa, but that is not supported and
one does so at their own risk. Releases are bad enough as is w/o having to add
in a multitude of hacks so that one can roll a 5.0 release on a 2.2.x box, etc.
