Oh that "print-PLIST"! What a broken useless piece of junk! :-)
Seriously though anyone using "print-PLIST" had better have a _LOT_ more
of a clue than expecting that thing to work properly in all cases!
Even more seriously: Now we have the METALOG facility in "install" I
don't see why we can't use it as an initial PLIST-maker instead of that
most bogus and lame attempt at using find -- then "print-PLIST" might
even work without having to be chrooted. The RCD_SCRIPTS installer
could then easily avoid triggering a METALOG entry and all would be good.
