NetBSD 6.1 NetBSD 6.1 (GENERIC) amd64

After a default NetBSD installation, the permissions of files /root/.cshrc and 
/root/.profile (which are 555) make /etc/security (which expects 644) complain:

Checking special files and directories.
        permissions (0644, 0555)
        permissions (0644, 0555)

Just install a brand new NetBSD ;-)
For shell configuration files, 644 makes way more sense than 555 so 
/etc/security is right so the permissions of /root/.cshrc and /root/.profile 
should be changed to 644 in the installation media.
