  It's not an ideal solution, but at least for releases
fetch -o - http://update.daemonology.net/${VERSION}/md5all | cut -f 1 -d '$' | uniq
will give you a list of all the files which belong in the base system.
Combine that with the output of `pkg_info -aqL`, and you'll have a
fairly complete list of what belongs on the system.
