Yes, set it in your mk.conf (wherever it is for you).
The UNPRIVILEGED support is not complete as I think only a few developers
work on it. I have done some bulk builds and have fouond many minor issues
that stop it from working. Some I have fixed but it is quite time
If you or anyone uses it, please do not file bug reports for every issue
found unless you have a ready-to-apply fix. But do file bug reports for
the software that you do need.
(Note that you spelled it wrong above, so if you used that it may explain
why it didn't work.)

It might work in most cases. Feel free to try and let us know.

Please file a bug report about this. Or if you can provide access to your
RHEL3 box, I will spend a few minutes looking at this for you.
