When installing (make install) some packages, e.g. pkg_install-19990819,
I often get the error message `chown: not found'. Sample output from
my last try:

wiz@hiro:/usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install> make install
===>  Installing for pkg_install-19990819
===>  Becoming to install pkg_install-19990819.
/usr/bin/su Password:
install ===> lib
install ===> add
install   -c -s -o root  -g wheel -m 555 pkg_add /usr/sbin/pkg_add
gzip -cf /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install/work/pkg_install/add/pkg_add.1 > /usr/share/man/man1/pkg_add.1.gz
chown: not found
*** Error code 127

*** Error code 1

and some more lines `*** Error Code 1' (in total: 6, 1 with code 127
and then 5 with code 1).
cd /usr/pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install
make install
<enter root passwd>
make -i install
This doesn't fix the error codes, but at least installs the program.
