Modify the expression that sets RELNUM to include appended versioning

A private FreeBSD distribution implements a custom version scheme via
newvers.sh, but freebsd-update(8) clients are unable to support the custom
versioning scheme in order to perform a binary update from a privately hosted
update server.

The attached patch modifies the expression(s) that set RELNUM to account for an
additional internal versioning component derived from newvers.sh's BRANCH
environment variable.  The variable is modified to append "-XXXX-n" to the
branch where "XXXX" is an internally specified name and "n" is the internal
patch number.
