You're right. Damn, I must have done the wrong thing. I upgraded to
RELENG_5 I guess. (It's hard to know, since the server panics when you
run reboot or shutdown -r, and is not immediately in front of me). I
screwed up.

The reason I thought the way I did was that I saw something like
'bsnmpd' show up in mergemaster, but it looks like that only arrives
when you upgrade to RELENG_5. Sorry Cody, sorry list.
