Thanks, that fixes it.

You're right, the most recent version doesn't have the problem anymore,
sorry about the noise. My snapshot was a few days old as I've only just
finished installing CVS :-).

Confirming this took me a while before I figured out that I needed to set
UNPRIVILEGED_GROUP to my numeric group id in order for testbootstrap to
succeed. This is because the default "id -gn" from mk/
comes up with "Domain Users" on my Interix which contains a space and all
hell breaks loose. On Interix, it seems necessary to use "id -g" instead.

Best regards,
