I'm not a pkgsrc pro. I don't get the "create the users and groups
beforehand" argument. How should I know, which user or group is going
to be created ?

The other point is usermgmt.conf. I see that I can specify the uid
range for new users, but that would imply non-system users aswell.=20
But my aim is to separate them. How can I accomplish this ?

Thanks, Z.
