No, I mean with or without this change. If root doesn't have write
access to 644 files or 755 directories, a number of (important) packages
would have failed in such a setup already. Those that set
PRIVILEGED_STAGES=clean are the most noticable example, but many others
fall into this categorie as well. Or does Solaris in such an example
disallow access to 700, but creation or modifications of files?
