I must disagree with that statement. Check out etcupdate. It's REALLY=20
EASY. I used to detest updating /etc, now it's easy.
After I untar the tarballs (I update via release builds),
tar xzpf /tarball/path/etc.tgz
etcupdate -b /tmp/temp

Most files I either just install, 'cause they are files I didn't modify,=20
or I skip, because they are files that have only my changes; there are no=
