/etc/mail/ was removed on 1/15 and /etc/changelist was
updated, but not /etc/mtree/special.  As a result the daily insecurity output

Checking special files and directories.
missing: ./etc/mail/

but the file really shouldn't be there now.  No idea what category this belongs
in, since it's related to the /etc/security script I want to say security but
I assume that's reserved for more serious bugs, so I'm calling it "misc".
Populate empty /etc directory, wait for evening run of /etc/security and
check results.
Remove entry from basesrc/etc/mtree/special
