pkgsrc makes a silly assumption on linux that GID will be root, in some distos
this is not the case, which causes bootstraping issues.
Perhaps bootstrap scripts should check with /etc/passwd to get the actual GID
will be root.
One example of this problem is installing pkgsrc on SSD/Linux from

Download a linux distro such as SSD/Linux and attempt to bootstrap pkgsrc on it.
