Please ensure that your source tree is up to date before making
assertions about bugs in the system, especially the build system.

That particular problem was solved on March 19 (2002/03/19) in
revision 1.198 of share/mk/  I've built many full
UNPRIVED releases since that fix and the permissions are correct.

If you notice problems like this on a fresh up to date source tree,
please use send-pr to report the problem at the time.
