Hey,

I have a custom kernel installed, and I use freebsd-update, which means 
any time something touches my kernel, I have to rebuild.

So when I did my most recent update, I got the output below.  It installed 
a new kernel, and a new pf.ko module, but it didn't touch anything in 
/usr/src/sys.  How?
