I have a machine on which I've routinely updated -current and it shows:

$ ls -laF /bin/[
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  10880 Sep 28  2012 /bin/[*
$ ls -laF /bin/test
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  12082 Oct 15 22:25 /bin/test*

So, the last time '/bin/[' was in "base.tgz" was just over two years

Trawling back through source-changes@, a likely candidate for the
problem appear to be in a group of commits affecting 'mtree' on
5 October 2012, particularly:
