I've upgraded my systems from 6.4 to 6.5 without a glitch, but I see
that /etc/networks and some other files (like malloc.conf.5) are still
present, although there is no use for them in the new release.

Is there a reason why these files are not listed in "FIles to remove"?
Is there a way to track them? It's not like something gonna break, but
old configuration files (and manual pages) lying around can make
someone's life harder during the debug session.
Take a look at the sysutils/sysclean port.
That's pretty much how I discovered this. But I want to know the
"official" way. Maybe there is a reason why e.g. perl files are to be
removed, but man pages are not.

I set up a script for sysclean:

cat sysclean65.txt | while read line ; do rm -rf "${line}" ; done
You probably want some /etc/sysclean.ignore bits before that
Agreed, thanks for the suggestion. Hadn't read the manpage properly, just for a change. With that you can just pipe sysclean's output to a delete script...
