This line is the cause of the breakage:

As you can see, there's no "compat*" dists listed here.  Since the
list of distributions fully matches the "make -V DISTRIBUTIONS"
output in src/release of HEAD, I believe that you try to use HEAD
version of release/Makefile to build a RELENG_5_3.

I mentioned this a number of times on the current@ mailing list,
that to build a 5.x release on 4.x, you need to check out and use
target (5.x) version of src/release/Makefile*.  And you should use
the WORLDDIR knob of "make release" to specify the location of
your 4.x src/ tree.
