I can vouche for STABLE being able to build CURRENT. I installed CURRENT
into a spare partition by cvsuping the source into /usr/current, doing
a build world and build kernel, mounting the CURRENT file systems under
/current and then doing make install DESTDIR=/current (and same for
installing the kernel of course). Had a few missing files even after
doing a mergemaster, but it did work.
