Re: Running into unknown user errors while building -current for the Rasberry Pi

By grepping some code I suspect this might be triggered by mtree/spec.c:

                        if (uid_from_user(val, &uid) == -1)
                                mtree_err("unknown user `%s'", val);

So I guess you have generated a mtree spec file for one of the sets which explicitly mentions the postgres user.

        What is the process using for the specification?
Yes, the user postgres exists on the host system, but why is that getting
picked up for the target build?

Any ideas on how to get more information or just solve the issue?  I see
similar issues in the past, but most of them predate the script
and there's nothing obvious in the BUILDING or UPDATING files that I
