I've got a number of ports that will build but not install.
The error is:
===> Generating temporary packing list
===> Checking if deskutils/gucharmap already installed
mtree: line 1: unknown group wheel---
*** Error code 1
I discovered that i had patch code left over from mergemaster in my /etc/group file, i have deleted and rebooted.
unfortunately, i still get the same error when i try to install ports.
the group file seems to have been readable to something, as i could sudo and su from my login user.
any help greatly appreciated.
