   I have an /etc/dhclient-exit-hooks on one of my hosts, and I am  
getting output from /etc/security runs complaining about the  
permissions.  It's currently mode 0555.  I see that /etc/mtree/ 
special lists that it (and dhclient-enter-hooks) should be 0644 (or  
less?).  This is an error, I think.

   The man page for dhclient-script(8) notes that these files must be  
executable to be used.  Therefore, I think the etc/mtree/special file  
should be changed to indicate that this is allowed, if not required.

   Let me know if I've gotten something wrong, but...
