I might as well go for the newer version then.

Bah, the build is tring to be "clever". You probably didn't build with
"sudo pkg_comp ...", as I did. For that case, the ./setup/
script tries to detect if you're running under sudo by looking at some
SUDO_* environment variables. If their presence is detected, it tries to
drop priviledges to that user - which leads to problems in the chroot
because that user doesn't exist.

This probably can't even be fixed by adding


because the ``env'' command then adds those variables with empty values,
instead of removing them. Maybe I should just patch that part away.

I  looked at mk/configure/, and claims to handle 
REPLACE_PYTHON but doesn't.

It looks like that file should work better, but indeed it doesn't handle
some cases that occur in calibre: One of the shbang lines is as
extreme as ``#!/usr/bin/env  python2'': with /usr/bin/env, multiple
spaces, and a version number appended.  /.*python[^ ]*/ simply can't
deal with that. Also, such a string occurs in the middle of a script
once, to be edited into installed files.

I will.
