i used to be able to have my pkgsrc on a remote NFS server (not
managed by me) and everything would work fine. a while ago this
got broken because "make install" started wanting to write to
work/.PLIST as root:
===> Becoming email@example.com to install xcolors-1.3.
install -c xcolors /usr/X11R6/bin/xcolors
install -c -m 0444 Xcolors.ad /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults/Xcolors
install in . done
install.man in . done
cannot create /amd/test/root/usr/netbsd/current/pkgsrc/x11/xcolors/work/.PLIST: permission denied
*** Error code 2
is there any way to work around this? it used to work fine.
