--- Comment #1 from Michelle Sullivan <michelle at sorbs.net> ---
Following: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/network-diskless.html to the
letter is broken.

Fails at: 

# make installworld DESTDIR=${NFSROOTDIR}
ERROR: Required auditdistd user is missing, see /usr/src/UPDATING.
*** [installcheck_UGID] Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src.
*** [installworld] Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src.

Reading UPDATING it states:

        With the addition of auditdistd(8), a new auditdistd user is now
        depended on during installworld.  "mergemaster -p" can be used to add
        the user prior to installworld, as documented in the handbook.


# grep audit /etc/master.passwd 
auditdistd:*:78:77::0:0:Auditdistd unprivileged

So of course check the new DESTROOT... oh wait you can't because it's a new
clean root that has no password files so there are no users at all...
