Default sysmerge(8) in -current

This is a notice to those using -current.

The etc & xetc filesets are being merged into base and xbase. This will obviously change how updates are made, &
sysmerge(8) functionality is being change too. The appropriate CVS check-in can be found at the following:

A useful comment from a recent misc@ thread:
Quote:
> Nowadays, does one need to use sysmerge at all?

yes.

to take a particular case which some readers here will need to know about:
if updating from code older than a month or two ago to 5.6 or -current, your
startup scripts will be semi-broken until you run sysmerge.

Thank for make this clean to me. I currently running OpenBSD 5.6-current and just recently updated to the 4 Sept version via /bsd.rd (due to the fact that my partition did not have enough space for src and obj files). When I use sysmerge at the end, I was wondering why options -s and -x were no longer recognized.
