Modify the expression that sets RELNUM to include appended versioning components
A private FreeBSD distribution implements a custom version scheme via newvers.sh, but freebsd-update(8) clients are unable to support the custom versioning scheme in order to perform a binary update from a privately hosted update server.
The attached patch modifies the expression(s) that set RELNUM to account for an additional internal versioning component derived from newvers.sh's BRANCH environment variable. The variable is modified to append "-XXXX-n" to the branch where "XXXX" is an internally specified name and "n" is the internal patch number.
Drop freebsd-update PRs which were assigned to me. I'm not working on this code any more.
