I have seen the following error a number of times after upgrading the ports last month or two.
$ portversion -OvL=
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/pkgtools.rb:1137: warning: Insecure world writable dir /usr/local in PATH, mode 040777
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/pkgmisc.rb:136: warning: Insecure world writable dir /usr/local in PATH, mode 040777
Indeed, the dir is world writable:
$ ls -ld /usr/local
drwxrwxrwx 27 root wheel 512 2 Jun 21:57 /usr/local
Since I usually make just upgrade of all ports, I could not tell which does the change.
Today I was upgrading the ports one-by-one. And the last one, x11-toolkits/vte, made
the dir world writable. I thought maintainer should know this fact ;-)
