The etcupdate utility is a tool for managing updates to files that are
not updated as part of `make installworld' such as files in /etc.  It
manages updates by doing a three-way merge of changes made to these files
against the local versions.  It is also designed to minimize the amount
of user intervention with the goal of simplifying upgrades for clusters
of machines.

The primary difference from mergemaster is that etcupdate requires less
manual work.  The primary difference from etcmerge is that etcupdate
updates files in-place similar to mergemaster rather than building a
separate /etc tree.

- Change the default work directory to honor the destination directory
  if it is set.  That is, it will use DESTDIR/var/db/etcupdate by
  default rather than always using /var/db/etcupdate as the default.
- Bump to 0.4.

- Improve error handling when building a tree.
- Remove -e, there are too many false positives (e.g. using diff to
  generate a patch for 'etcupdate diff', or the compare function) that
  it breaks.
- Bump to 0.2.
