Right. 1049594, however, is not treated specially by pkgsrc.
Is a domain Administrator automatically a member of the local Administrators
group (131616)? If so, pkgsrc should be happy as-is; it is using the gid
(as of now, numerically) for most privilege check uses.

At the moment, pkg_* in pkgsrc does not do the permissions check on Interix
