Don't overwrite dma(8)'s config files.
I don't think we should install to /etc during installworld.
My primary concern was about make upgrade.  Nevertheless the solution is
far from perfect but it stops overwriting the config files for now.

Yes, but now the files get installed in the wrong step. This means that you can't pull in changes with mergemaster.

swildner@ told me about keeping /etc files in a cvs repo and let cvs do
the config merge for us.  Is this idea still alive?

This idea has been around for a long time. Nobody ever bothered implementing it, however.

Take a look at openssh how other parts of the system solve this. Should we do it like that as well?
Could you elaborate on that.

I mean using a mechanism like in secure/usr.sbin/sshd/Makefile.etc, splitting installation of world from installation of etc.
