while installing multimedia/realplayer-codecs pkgsrc told me that
there were .so files installed without execute permissions. Indeed
they are because the package uses INSTALL_DATA instead of INSTALL_LIB.
My question is... as these .so files seem to be "plugins" (not
libraries linked to a binary), do they also need executable
permissions in some platform? If so, I'll fix it. Which is the
offending platform, if I may ask?
