Just upgraded to 3.99.3 with sources from us2 anoncvs mirror (~20050404).
Previous system was from ~20050204. su(1) now claims that:
su: You are not listed in the correct secondary group (wheel) to su root.
su: Sorry: authentication error
Well, previously I didn't need to belong there as there was /etc/mk.conf:
That environment variable name was changed some time ago. Then PAM
came and I needed to edit /etc/pam.d/su. Now what?
PS. I undestand that security is an ongoing process, but it is still
annoying to find out that you've upgraded yourself out of the loop.
I don't think running release with only documented features at their
default values is an option.
