        Ok, I decided to go proactive and add -p mode for "pre
{build|install}world" which compares master.passwd, group, and the
variables in /etc/make.conf to /usr/src/share/examples/etc/make.conf.
This should give people a fairly painless way to handle the transition
if they choose to accept it. While I was there, I added some other code
I've been using for a while to compare variables in /etc/rc.conf[.local]
with the same variables in /etc/defaults/rc.conf. Use 'mergemaster -C'
to use that feature.

        If someone has suggestions on more files to add to -p mode, let me
know. I'll update the man page after people have had a chance to play
with these.
