This worked great  but  on mergemaster -cv in single user , at  one point it
asked me these questions , I got nervous and puzzled

Use 'd' to delete the temporary ."xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
  Use 'i' to install the temporary ."xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
  Use 'm' to merge the temporary and installed versions
  Use 'v' to view the diff results again

# xxx refers to path for config files,  I running on default freebsd mode
and did not made any change

I just presses ENTER key the default ( because it advised to be left for
later consideration"

DO I just not bother any more.

Thanks
Dak
