Cannot Update to 10-nightlies from 9.3-nightlies
Fresh install of 9.3-Nightlies-201505290653. If I switch to the 10-Nightlies train, everything downloads but I get the attached error during the apply.

This may not work in the long run, but for now I do expect it to. ("This" being "upgrades from one major OS to another major OS.")
It'll have to be fixed in 9.3.

Found that one, but in going further I found another problem.
I'm not sure how to handle this one: in 9.3, etc/local is a directory; in 10, it's a symlink. The install code looks at the type of the new file, and says, ah, it's a (file | symlink), so I shall remove the old one and create the new one. But that fails, because it can't unlink a directory.
And then I seem to have discovered another problem. Hm.

This fixes two issues -- one is that I was passing the wrong object to a function (and thus the original exception), the other being a directory in 9.3 turned into a symlink in 10. I'm not positive the latter is the right thing, yet, but it did allow the update to happen.

Per comment above, this issue appears to be resolved (the other issue is post-install, and looks like a networking issue, and may have been resolved at the same time the DHCP issue was).

Noting that a fresh install of http://download.pcbsd.org/iso/nightlies/latest-10.0.iso boots just fine but gave a networking error at boot when updating to the latest M2 from the latest 9.3.
