Something to check -- did you build with -U but install without it?
That will manifest itself as programs that should be setuid but
which in turn can cause all sorts of access problems. Here's an easy
check: is /usr/bin/su setuid or not? If not, that's your problem.
Thanks for that hint, but it turns out that my problem was homemade,
I should have known. I was *very* careful when running the etcupdate
script, so careful in fact that when I saw that /etc/passwd would be
updated with the missing users for httpd and so on, I was so happy
that I just pressed "i" for install...
Of *course* that killed my previous accounts! Not NetBSD's fault at
all, just mine. Sorry for generating traffic. :-)
Now I am happily running an old IP3 Networks server (sounds like a
vacuum cleaner) as a NetBSD-current box *with* my accounts. Just have
to build a custom kernel next...
