Sure, but I'll bet there's a step it does where it does not pass on
$etcdir.  Otherwise I can't account for the fact that all the input
looks correct, but the set list (or whatever its called) that gets
generated during maketars has the wrong group info - and its a case of
gid mapping to wrong name.
