Hi all,

Running FreeBSD 8.4-RELEASE-p7 and attempting to upgrade to 10.0-RELEASE
via freebsd-update as instructed at
http://www.freebsd.org/releases/10.0R/installation.html has resulted in
errors during the automatic merge that occurs during "freebsd-update
upgrade -r 10.0-RELEASE".

The results are many merges that could not occur mainly due to the CVS
version lines despite having /etc/mergemaster.rc setup.  Here is the
contents of the config file:

/*** /etc/mergemaster.rc ***/

root@iese-bsd100-dev:~ # cat /etc/mergemaster.rc
# Automatically install files that do not exist
AUTO_INSTALL='yes'
# Automatically upgrade files that have not been edited
AUTO_UPGRADE='yes'
# Ignore files that I don't want changed
IGNORE_FILES='/etc/motd'
# Do not display changes that only affect whitespace
DIFF_FLAG="'.Bub'"
# Ignore CVS id lines to stop replacing files where only that line has
changed
DIFF_OPTIONS='-I$FreeBSD:.*[$]'

/*** /etc/mergemaster.rc ***/

I have tried different variations of DIFF_FLAG, "'-Bub'", and DIFF_OPTIONS,
'-I $FreeBSD:.*[$]', both of which resulted in the same behavior.  Based on
threads I've read in the archives and a couple posts on the forums, this
seems correct.  Wondering if anyone has any thoughts and/or suggestions?
