	The manual page at(1) says:

     An empty /var/at/at.deny means that every user is allowed use these com-
     mands.  This is the default configuration.

	However, NetBSD does not install an empty /var/at/at.deny, so
	by default only root is permitted to use 'at'.

	Try to use 'atq' as a normal user on a freshly installed
	NetBSD system.

	Either we should install and ship an empty /var/at/at.deny, or
	we should fix the documentation to say that the default
	configuration is that only root can use 'at'.

	I'm not sure exactly where it would make sense to install the
	empty /var/at/at.deny -- perhaps from etc/Makefile?
