=> === Aborted, please remove /nonexistent
=> So, have you tried to do that? Many port will fail if you have a
=> file, device, pipe, directory -- anything -- named ``nonexistent'' in
=> the root directory (/).

=I am unable to remove /nonexistent, as this is a dir that was created
=by default and is being used by such users (as defined in /etc/passwd)
=as www, nobody, pop & gdm on this (and other systems).

NO. All of the accounts and software you listed rely on quite the
opposite -- on the fact, the directory does NOT exist. I don't know,
what might've created it, but it certainly is not supposed to exist --
as the name itself implies :-)

I'll close the PR. Yours,
