Which "sane umask" should we pick? 022, 027, 002? :-)
[ My implication is that setting any default is likely to be considered the
wrong default by many people, especially where the user himself has a non-sane
umask to begin with. ]
Besides, many ports end up using the install command to manually set
permissions (obviously for anything which is setuid/setgid) anyway, so the
issue is not any less complicated than it may appear at first glance.
