The homeperm setting in /etc/usermgmt.conf is ignored by useradd.

The code that reads the settings from /etc/usermgmt.conf sets a default value 
for up->u_homeperm after the value was read from the file,
overwriting the read value.

1. set homeperm to a value other than 0755 in /etc/usrmgmt.conf
   0700 for example.
2. create account with the -m flag to create the home directory
   and without the -M flag.
   useradd -m test1
3. The home directory is created with 0755 mode and not the mode
   specified in /etc/usrmgmt.conf.

in file

in function
  read_defaults(user_t *up)

move the line
  up->u_homeperm = DEF_HOMEPERM;

before the code that reads _PATH_USERMGMT_CONF.

for example, after
  up->u_expire = DEF_EXPIRE;
and before
  if ((fp = fopen(_PATH_USERMGMT_CONF, "r")) == NULL) {
