You are right - thx for taking the time to explain. But why do you
need both? Doesn't
@exec install -m 755 -o %%WWWOWN%% -g %%WWWGRP%% -d %D/%%WWWDIR%%/tmp
work for pkgng? Is the problem that it doesn't change owner/group if the
directory is already installed/created? And why did you add
to "do-install"? I know for sure that it isn't necessary when you use
"make install" (since the directory is created by COPYTREE_SHARE.
In which case is it needed?
