Many of the sources in /usr/src/domestic (most, if not all
of the kerberos sources) have the executable bit set incorrectly.
ftp to ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-current/src/domestic
and look around, e.g. in lib/libss.
(for developers) check out a copy of src/domestic with CVS.$a
permissions on many of the files (incorrectly) include the
Change the permissions on the files in the master CVS tree,
and change them in the ftp.netbsd.org FTP area. (If you

Similarly, devlopers will have to chmod the sources in their
own source trees, because CVS won't fix it for them either.)
