Oops, I spoke too soon. It happens on a regular clean build as well.
Crosscompiling from FreeBSD, which apparently matters:

makesetfiles ===> /tank/vol-fourquid-1/olafs/netbsd-git/cvs/src/distrib/sets

The file .../destdir.amd64/METALOG does indeed contain this on line 1301:

./var/chroot/named/etc/namedb/cache type=dir uid=14 gname=ftp mode=0775

and it is the first time that gname=ftp is mentioned.

What strikes me as odd though is that ftp is used there at all; and
indeed in an earlier METALOG file from a native build I find

./var/chroot/named/etc/namedb/cache type=dir uname=named gname=named mode=0775

Maybe something in the build system uses the hosts's uid and gid
numbers? The host's /etc/group file contains


where on my own netbsd system I have the same gid for named:


Maybe the METALOG should always use numerical values for these, if they
are meant to be specific numbers. (I wonder where it got the mapping
named -> 14 from... and why the sanitizing step cannot use it as well...
or tar when it builds the tar files...)
