Nope, those are the packages for RELENG_4; the 5.x packages are in
packages-5-current.  However fetch is actually doing the right thing
in only fetching from the packages-5.1-release directory on your
5.1-RELEASE, because packages built for newer versions of
FreeBSD-CURRENT are not guaranteed to work on 5.1-RELEASE.

See the pkg_add manpage.
