You can run etc-update and then merge each file individually, while
inspecting any changes. On a new system you can probably replace all of
the old configuration files with the new ones, but after you configure
any services be careful you don't replace anything important.
If there are only a few files to update, I usually just do a diff -u
from the command line then overwrite the old config file with the new.
