Ah, ok. It might be better to install a file into the source
directory that's owned by root and 0644, then try and truncate it so
the test is more portable and doesn't accidentally hose a utility or
other file that it shouldn't as that's the purpose of the testcase (to
test EACESS). Does that sound like a good approach?
