You can use CVS (comes with the FreeBSD system), too:

	% man cvs

I found it to be a very comfortable system to manage file
changes on the path of my own software development (document
progress, undo "bad" inventions, checkin and checkout even
with multiple contributors).

Using CVS to manage self made system configuration files
is, by the way, a very good idea I never thought of. I'll
see if I like this concept.
