RE: install as root.root doesn't work on BSD systems

I would've thought by now that the BSDs would have solved the
insecure ownerships/permissions defaults by now.

OpenBSD appears to not have this insecure default.  

find / -user bin -print 

yielded eleven font files, nothing more.  I realize this is not the
place for this debate, but I don't think 'bin.bin' just for the sake of
compliant with the NetBSD standard is the right answer.
