        games/rollemup has some data files with rather liberal
        permission settings.   Well, at least more liberal than
        the pkgsrc police seem willing to permit (perhaps only
        if PKG_DEVELOPER is set, I did not check without it).

        While rollemup is probably no longer available to most
        people (I believe the distfile vanished, and it was always
        a "no premission to redistribute" object) it remains useful
        to keep in pkgsrc (and keep working) for those of us who
        do have a copy of the distfile.

        Attempt to install games/rollemup (if you have the distfile).

        I am doing that using pkg_comp and NetBSD 3.0 release sets
        installed, using libkver, but none of that will be relevant to
        this problem, except perhaps that pkg_comp causes PKG_DEVELOPER
        to be set.

        Expect to see ...

        Most probably just chmod the README file before/after
        installation - I don't imagine it really needs to be
        rw-rw-rw- as it is - but on the other hand I also don't
        really see what harm it could do (so people could stick random
        stuff in a file that no-one ever looks at - and I guess do some
        disk quota avoidance ... but that's about it.)

        The other files - the directories - (giving warnings) probably
        need to be left group writable.  At least, I'm assuming there
        is/was some logical reason for it (README was probably just a mistake).
