Hi,

When using makefs with METALOG, I've noticed that things like 'passwd' aren't set suid.

I found that this in METALOG:

. type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./etc type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./sbin type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./usr type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./usr/bin type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./usr/bin/passwd type=file uname=root gname=wheel mode=04555 size=7000
./etc/passwd type=file mode=0644 uname=root gname=wheel

.. results in /usr/bin/passwd being not setuid.

But:

. type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./etc type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./sbin type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./usr type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./usr/bin type=dir uname=root gname=wheel mode=0755
./etc/passwd type=file mode=0644 uname=root gname=wheel
./usr/bin/passwd type=file uname=root gname=wheel mode=04555 size=7000

.. results in /usr/bin/passwd being setuid.
