DESTDIR support for etcupdate?

Is there any way to run etcupdate for NetBSD on other than the current root?

This would be useful for a new installation from an existing installation, 
building from source, on a different device, such as USB stick to hard-drive 
partition, or vice versa.  

I have a USB-stick installation, ran newfs on hard-drive partition, made 
appropriate directories, used cvs to checkout and update src and pkgsrc trees, 
ran to build and install system, but still need to get /etc and /dev 
more ready.

FreeBSD's mergemaster, which is their counterpart to NetBSD's etcupdate, has an 
option -D (destdir) to work on a different destination directory.
