   |  seahorse-daemon is in the PLIST, so it probably should exist. Please
   |  check why it isn't built.
 It looks to be being built OK (make output from scripts that are full
 of shell control statements are never really easy to comprehend, without
 knowing which path through the maze was taken, anything is possible).
 But at least, it certainly looks to be going through a path which could
 build seahorse-daemon and not complaining anywhere there.
 However, there is no sign of any attempt to install it, before the
 attempt (that failed) to chmod the (not) installed file.
 I notice that seahorse-daemon is (apparently) compiled in
 which looks to be a very plausible location for it to live.
 On the other hand, the chmod that fails is in
 Something in the install there is attempting to chmod seahorse-daemon.
 seahorse-daemon may just not be installed yet (there may be some sequence
 error in the makefiles or install recipes), or there might be a typo in
 the seahorse-agent (assuming there is such a thing, I really know nothing
 about it) install script, and it should be chmoding seahorse-agent at
 that point, or ...
 This is about all I know about it, though it is fairly easy to build it
 all again (and at least as long as my system stays up and /tmp remains,
 I do have the build logs from several attempts to build this - I tend to
 keep trying to build things over and over hoping someone else will notice
 the problem and I won't need to send a PR ...)
 Because I use pkg_comp, which always does "make clean" (succeed or fail)
 I don't have the corpse from the make attempt, but I could build it
 manually if no-one else can reproduce what I am seeing.
