I've the same problem, but never used mergemaster. Is it save to use it that 
it only adds the audit group.
Is it true when I use the merge option that some groups will be over 
written? example the wheel group will became empty except root...

If it save only to add the audit group
Hove to add this group?

It's taken care of by the general upgrading procedure, which directs
you to mergemaster -p for precisely this reason.
