No. By default, the package does not install any files in etc, so they
don't need to be recorded. And in the case it needed to install some
files there, the package should record those files in another directory,
for example share/examples/*, and then, using some special variables
found in, place the files in the right directory.

Update your Packages.txt; I added a section about this ;)


Of course it runs NetBSD -
