Subject proxy chown problem
Date Fri, 16 Apr 1999 11:17:01 GMT
Current HEAD is not able to be installed (make install)
by a non-root user.

The code Dirk committed a little while back to fix
his proxy permission problems
doesn't check to see if the user doing the make install
has permission to do an 'chown nobody proxystuff'

[snippet of failed install]
./src/helpers/ /tmp/makeinstallprob/proxy
mkdir /tmp/makeinstallprob/proxy
chown nobody /tmp/makeinstallprob/proxy
chown: /tmp/makeinstallprob/proxy: Operation not permitted
make[1]: *** [install-mktree] Error 1

In ./configure we check to see if the user is root 
and if not we set the Port to 8080.  Maybe we could do this chown
in the same way.
