As soon as this was said the idea popped into mind to just tie etcupdate
into the source directly. Add it to the source tree somewhere where it
can be called by (make etcupdate). In this case its on everybody's
system and both can co-exist without harm. ;)

Regardless of either decision to be made I look at adding a port just
for this as unneeded overhead when people that are updating their system
via source already have the tree on the system or near by.

If you want it installed after all that either copy it to your ~/bin
directory or symlink it.
