That really seems like a bug in postinstall or the set lists.  As far as
I know NetBSD has never installed /var/chroot/spamd, and thus there is
no sensible way that it can be considered obsolete.  I thought obsolete
meant a file that was known to have been installed by former NetBSD
verisons and is not installed in this release.
