From: Joerg Sonnenberger <>
Subject: PR/40737 CVS commit: pkgsrc/mk/pkginstall
Date: Sun, 8 Mar 2009 19:39:03 +0000

 Module Name:   pkgsrc
 Committed By:  joerg
 Date:          Sun Mar  8 19:39:03 UTC 2009
 Modified Files:
        pkgsrc/mk/pkginstall: usergroupfuncs.Linux
 Log Message:
 Try to work around the mess called useradd on Linux. On Red Hat derived
 distributions, useradd will create the home directory by default and
 there is support for an option to disable that. Other Linux
 distrubutions either lack the option in login.defs or the support for
 -M. As workaround look for the option and if it is set, force -M.
 Tested by Jens Rehsack. Addresses PR 40737.
