I always avoid freebsd-update when moving between releases simply
because of this atrocity.
If it requires we setup a stupid kickstarter to fund a developer to sit
down and rip into freebsd-update so it uses mergemaster I would be
incredibly thankful. I don't know how anyone can upgrade between FreeBSD
releases without an /etc/mergemaster.rc with the following settings:
# keep our custom motd
# Do not display changes that only affect whitespace
