I don't have that file. I do have a "/usr/local/etc/pkg/repos 

## poudriere repository file

poudriere: {
   url: "file:///usr/local/poudriere/data/packages/12amd64-default",
   mirror_type: NONE,
   enabled: yes

Actually, I just changed it. It was set to the old package directory. BTW, is
this actually listed anywhere? I never noticed it in the "UPDATING to FreeBSD
12.0-RELEASE info.
