I didn't do a repo-copy as there is really no history to preserve.  As for 
the pf.conf.5 changes - what do you have in mind?  I don't see what 
should be changed.  /etc/pf.conf is still the default location for the 
ruleset (as set by defaults/rc.conf) and there is already a pointer to 
the examples.  ObsoleteFiles.inc doesn't make sense at all, as there 
should be an /etc/pf.conf.  The whole point of this is that you can have 
your own ruleset and not have it overwritten every time you run 
mergemaster.  In contrast to other default settings we install in /etc 
the pf.conf example doesn't have any function as is - thus the desire for 
human interaction which is the point of this commit.
