pkgdb-change: Fix nit in email, drop claim of future improvements
The split-brain email referred to /usr/pkg/pkgdb when it should have
said /usr/pkg/pkgdb.refcount in section 7.
Stop claiming that the script will likely be updated to deal with not
finding the refcount directory. Not only am I almost certainly not
going to do this, but I now think it's a bad idea; not finding
something is not a reliable indicator of being in an ok state without
refcount, and making the user figure it out and create and empty
directory is much safer.
