This is a problem with the FreeBSD port. I filed a bug on this

will forward this to the package maintainer and see if he can
look into it.
I suspect (without having done any investigation whatsoever)
that this is just a philosophical thing.
If you're going to install from ports, you should upgrade the
port via the normal methods for upgrading ports. Installing a
port and then manually modifying the files (or via msfupdate
etc.) is nasty :)
If you want to use msfupdate, why bother installing from ports
in the first place?
