I don't quite understand why this need to be put in the base system.

If you want to use gitup, you `pkg install gitup`, if you prefer to use
git, you `pkg install git`.  This makes sure you always have the latest
version, and as a bonus, you don't have to build it.

With the base system moving to being packaged with pkg, if you want to
install some part of the base system, you will have to do `pkg install
FreeBSD-foo` anyway.  Wether you have to type `pkg install
FreeBSD-gitup` or `pkg install gitup` does not change anything.
