I was just building the clisp pkg, as an unprivileged user, and this
happened, breaking the build....
/usr/bin/install -c -o root -g wheel -m 444 .libs/libcharset.so.1.0.0 /usr/pkgsrc/lang/clisp/work.hackworth/clisp-2.38/src/libcharset.so.1.0.0
install: /usr/pkgsrc/lang/clisp/work.hackworth/clisp-2.38/src/libcharset.so.1.0.0: chown/chgrp: Operation not permitted
Someone should fix it, but also, it is in general a bad idea not to
test building packages without privs, and it is also bad for packages
builds to contain instances of "install" that require privs...
