The machine is in an inaccessible place (radio-tower, now double 
inaccessible because of COVID) and I simply run pkg update on FreeBSD 
every so often, and run an upgrade when I must.
Stangely, it was stuck with the old version of rancid from pkg and pkg 
wasn't complaining.

I un-installed rancid, installed rancid (now 'rancid3' in pkg) and all 
is well.

I don't know how this package got stuck on the old version, but now all 
is well. Apologies for crying wolf.
