The procedure is to commit to src/usr.sbin first and then commit
the same file to pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install.  Sometimes, people
forget about the second part or commit to pkgsrc directly.

I agree that it's annoying, but I don't know how to do this better
with the currrent infrastructure. Do you have an idea?

Btw, I synced the pkgsrc and base system versions, and gave them a new
version number so that we know they are the same and have the same code :)
