It doesn't. I hadn't considered that because I never keep modified
files in the pkg directory. I have always found that to be a
weakness. I like to blow away the entire pkg tree from time to time
just to get a fresh start. Anything I modify gets put in /usr/local
or /etc and the startup scripts point to that location.
