mergemaster -U

and it was there all the time, in the man page!

From mergemaster(8):

-U     Attempt to auto upgrade files that have not
       been user modified.

Which is a very useful option to use if you are upgrading a FreeBSD server from a -RELEASE version to a -STABLE version, for example from 8.0-RELEASE to 8-STABLE.

In such case there are a lot of files that will be modified during the installation (like those in /etc/defaults or /etc/periodic) but whose only modification is a timestamp in the cvs information at the beginning of the file.

Passing the -U argument to mergemaster will avoid you having to check each file separately.

(Lucky me I did found this!)
