*** /var/tmp/temproot ready for use
*** Creating and populating directory structure in /var/tmp/temproot
/usr/bin/install: Undefined symbol "gid_from_group"
*** FATAL ERROR: Cannot copy files to the temproot environment

truss install -d -g wheel ~/testdirectory
I find an error of
lstat("/usr/local/etc/libmap.d",0x7fffffffb990) ERR#2 'No such file or
Any suggestions? Thank you for the help thus far.
