I upgraded a system from 6.3-RELEASE to 7.0-RELEASE with freebsd-update(8).
I had manually modified /etc/pf.conf and 7.0-RELEASE doesn't ship that file
anymore. This is how freebsd-update handled it:
The following file will be removed, as it no longer exists in
FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE: /etc/pf.conf
Does this look reasonable (y/n)? y
sha256: merge/new//etc/pf.conf: No such file or directory

The following files are affected by updates, but no changes have
been downloaded because the files have been modified locally:

freebsd-upgrade(8) tries erroneously to run sha256 for a non-existent file.
Following patch should fix this error. However IMO removing pf.conf in this
case isn't optimal for end user but this may not be considered as a bug in
