The problem turned out to be "show version build-info all" - ie:

nexus5000-1# show version build-info all
% Invalid command at '^' marker.

Comment out the "{'show version build-info all'   =>
'ShowVersionBuild'}," line and rancid (actually nxrancid - I spent
more time than I'd like to admit looking at rancid) is able to grab
the config.  So all's fine with that box now, but the next n5k is
still failing; log file shows

Trying to get all of the configs.
nexus5000-2: missed cmd(s): show license
Getting missed routers: round 1.
nexus5000-2: missed cmd(s): show license

ssh into the box & typing in the command doesn't give any output:

nexus5000-2# show license

Help getting around this one would be appreciated.
