System: NetBSD 8.99.12 NetBSD 8.99.12 (SPEEDY 2018-02-12 00:00:12 UTC) #3: Mon Feb 12 06:57:12 UTC 2018 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
After a recent upgrade from 8.99.7 --> 8.99.12, the /etc/security
script is reporting a missing file:

	Checking special files and directories.
	./etc/rc.d/dhcpd6 missing

I have succcessfully run both postinstall and etcupdate, neither of
which complains about this file.  The file is listed in the
/etc/mtree/special file, but without the optional flag that other
related files (such as /etc/dhcpcd.{duid,hook} and /etc/dhcpcd6.conf)
have.  Therefore, even though the file is not installed, the daily
/etc/security script expects the file to exist.
See above - upgrade to 8.99.12 and run the daily /etc/security script.
Perhaps it is as simple as adding the "optional" flag to the entry in
/etc/mtree/special specification file?  Or perhaps the file should be
properly installed, and its absence detected (and fixed) by either
postinstall or etcupdate?
