minor cherry-picks.

The sudo CVE is covered by this update, the version available is 1.9.5p2.

If you happen to upgrade pkg from 1.14.x to 1.16.x and above, you'll  
get the following error:

pkg: Failed to execute lua script: [string "-- args:  
etc/pkg.conf.sample..."]:12: attempt to call a nil value (field 'stat')
pkg: lua script failed
No active remote repositories configured.

It's a known bug, simply copy the sample mirror config file over:

# cp /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/df-latest.conf.sample
