Trying to install devel/git on FreeBSD 11.1-STABLE amd64 failed due to two 
files in pkg-plist not being found.

I checked the distfiles (tar tvf) and still didn't find the two files.

I was able to edit pkg-plist to remove the two offending lines, saving the 
official version as pkg-plist.orig.

Then I was successful installing devel/git 2.14.1.

What made me anxious was trying to cross-compile Haiku ( from 
FreeBSD, and compilation apparently requires git to verify the tags.

This is a rather new installation (FreeBSD 11.1-STABLE), hance I had no 
previous installation of git.
