help for the lame

I finally got this working correctly. What I found I had to do was to
create a 'tinderbox' user and group and run as that user. Interesting,
considering I don't need to do that in doing a buildworld, but I guess
I have something in my environment that poisons tinderbox builds if I
run as me.

why don't you just use tbmaster?

You need to set the target machine as well, see below
