I'm probably the only one still using uucp, but anyway:
uucp: setuid(66): Operation not permitted.
The problem seems to be that HAVE_SAVED_SETUID is set to 1 in
policy.h, allthough NetBSD's setuid() does not behave as expected
by the Taylor-UUCP package. Because the same is true for setreuid(),
I decided to replace the setuid() calls in init.c and tcp.c by
seteuid(). This doesn't seem to break anything else until now,
or does it?
