It's not a good idea to delete user edited config file: /etc/settings.conf

One of the nice things about our upgrade target is that it doesn't mangle user managed files;
let's keep it that way.

/etc/settings.conf could be renamed or just left alone for the user to handle;
please note that usr.bin/pkg_search also uses /etc/settings.conf;
maybe this should also be changed (pkg_search.1 could use note on this use).

I agree with Thomas. In the past we didn't mess with files that might have been modified by the user, let alone files which are not part of base (like settings.conf) from make upgrade.
