Also note, that while the "make build" will attempt to create missing
directories automatically as one of the first things it does, this will
fail in -current if the user and group for the chroot-ed named don't
exist.  They must be created manually before the "make build" -- see
/usr/src/etc/master.passwd and /usr/src/etc/group.

The basic difference is this: hackers build things, crackers break them.
