Both PLIST and +CONTENTS. Many parts are useful enough that it makes
sense to include them statically in a PLIST as well. Just think about
the default sudorc with a nice checksum to detect modification :-)

I explicitly do NOT want to include them in packages. The simple fact
that it created a lot of problems in that past makes this IMO absolutely
undesireable. The concept of device files makes no sense under Interix I
believe, the creation of device files doesn't work in a jail under
DragonFly/FreeBSD and the major/minor numbers differ on all systems,
typically even platforms.
