Are you thinking of the chflags command?

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?q...lags&sektion=1

Or maybe the chattr command?

chattr -i should remove the immutable attribute.

Ok, you've probably got chflags - I believe the syntax to set the immutable bit for chflags is:

chflags nouchg

or chflags nouunlink

uchg is user immutable, not system immutable /var/empty has the system immutable flag set (schg), like the error message indicated:

Code:
override r-xr-xr-x  root/wheel schg for tmp/temproot/var/empty? y
As has already been mentioned, you can use chflags(1) to remove the schg flags.
Please note that if your system's securelevel is set then schg (and sappnd) can not be removed for obvious reasons.

Answering y at the end of a mergemaster run will automatically clear this out for you.
