Modify the comms/minicom/Makefile so
And edit SPECIAL_PERMS, OWN_DIRS_PERMS, CONF_FILES_PERMS as needed.
(Maybe use MINICOM_USER and MINICOM_GROUP instead?)
Add those to mk/defaults/mk.conf
In your own mk.conf set them to a normal user account that you can use.
Edit as needed any source that uses "uucp" and/or "dialer".
