Why it should be "fixed" if it ain't broken? :) Your system still
happily boots without DHCP6 server, isn't it? If you want to update
your configuration files to the new etc.tgz you run etcupdate.
postinstall only does minimal configuration tweaks that are necessary
to keep the system working with the new userland, or at least that was
its original design goal as I remember it.
