I'm not sure why you'd say that. By design mergemaster checks the
$FreeBSD Id string in the installed file and if it's the same as the one
in the temproot then it deletes the temproot version and moves on. That
behavior was primarily designed to accommodate configuration files, but
it works just as well for everything else mergemaster deals with.
