Description carlj 2013-07-25 19:10:00 UTC
        I just installed the devel/rbenv port and discovered that it had
        reset the ownerships of all SUID and SGID files in
        /usr/local/libexec and included subdirectories.  After the
        installation, all of those were changed to root:wheel.  The
        periodic security script showed nine files changed in my case.
        I couldn't get the program to work, so the program needs other
        fixes and appears useless now.


No fix known to me, other than restore those from backup.
        I had just installed the devel/rbenv port (not package).

Carl confirmed that this fix I had sent to him worked.
From Carl:
Yes it does fix the ownership problem.  I first found the files in a
backup with:
    find . ! \( -user root -and -group wheel \) -ls
and then changed the files manually since there were only 9 of them.  I
still haven't figured out how to get the program to work even though the
corresponding package in Debian Linux works fine, but I consider that a
separate issue.  The ownership was what I considered the serious
problem.  Thanks for the quick response.
