From a unprivilaged build, the meta-data does not seem to be correctly
reflected in the tar file when two files are linked together.
From the tar file, we see:
-r-xr-xr-x root/wheel 87044 Apr 5 01:28 2002 ./usr/bin/sysstat
-r-xr-sr-x root/kmem 0 Apr 5 01:28 2002 ./usr/bin/systat link to ./usr
note that while the attributes on the link are correct, these don't
matter, since the permissions come from the real file during the
Do an unprivilaged build, then install the files. Note that systat
does not have suid permissions.
The permissions can always be fixed up manually, but this is a
quality of implementation issue.
