  Merge sysctl.9:1.1-1.3, Makefile:1.274, sysctl_add_oid.9:1.21,
  sysctl_ctx_init.9 from HEAD to RELENG_6:
    Add a basic man page for the sysctl(9) macro interfaces.  Previously man
    pages existed only for the dynamic sysctl interfaces.  There's probably
    more complete and accurate content, better advice, etc, that could be
    added here.
    Per scottl's suggest, add a small piece of moralizing text regarding the
    fact that sysctl names quickly get embedded in system configuration files,
    libraries, third party applications, and even books, so renaming and
    removing names after they've been published is a tricky issue.
    Fix typo.
