            Bug ID: 194746
           Summary: /etc/freebsd-update.conf shouldn't include src as an
                    Component on the Components line
           Product: Base System
           Version: 9.3-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: Needs Triage
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: conf
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: dereks at lifeofadishwasher.com

Since the src component is optional part of the FreeBSD base system more often
than not you'll always end up with these type of error messages from
freebsd-update fetch/install:

$ freebsd-update fetch
The following files will be added as part of updating to 10.0-RELEASE-p11:
$ freebsd-update install
Installing updates...install: ///usr/src/contrib/tzdata/zone1970.tab: No such
file or directory

If you want to keep /usr/src up to date then you should have to add that to
/etc/freebsd-update.conf or freebsd-update(8) should be smart and not try to
install components that are not installed.

freebsd-update should have some logic to understand an empty /usr/src/ means I
don't care about the src component even though it's on the Components line in
