what's the differente between "etcupdate" and "postinstall"? I was
wondering this because I was reading "Tracking NetBSD-current", section
"Installing a current snapshot", and the autor explain I must update
/etc before updating base utilities, and then he uses "postinstall";
after installing base.tgz, etc.tgz, etc. he uses "etcupdate".

Thank you.
