Modified Files:
	src/etc: postinstall

Log Message:
Deprecate etc_release check, since etc/release is now part of base.tgz.

Support '-s /path/to/etc.tgz' which extract the file to a scratch directory
and run the contained version of postinstall against that directory.
This saves about 5 tedious steps which I've done by hand when updating,
and the expense of some minor CPU time on each invocation of this method.

XXX: postinstall needs a man page.  pkill -HINTHINT wizd
