: You can get everything of that directly from the package file.
With package file you mean the foo.tgz binary package?
What Lloyd is trying to do is the following: As unpriviledged user,
extract a bunch of (sys)packages into a staging directory and then
create an fss image from that. The files on the image need to have
correct ownership and permissions.
Now, if pkg_add could write that information to a file while it is
processing said information, it would be much less error prone than
extracting and converting the information in a separate step.
