Description Adrian Chadd freebsd_committer 2014-12-30 21:24:43 UTC
When doing a non-root user build, install gets run to populate symlinks.

The build is calling INSTALL_SYMLINK to do the dirty work.

This doesn't provide user/group information, so the entry in METALOG looks like this:

./sys type=link mode=0755 link=usr/src/sys

.. and makefs then populates it as the user in question from the filesystem, and you end up with this in the image:

root@raspberry-pi:~ # ls -l /sys
lrwxr-xr-x  1 adrian  adrian  11 Dec 29 01:59 /sys -> usr/src/sys

(I added adrian:adrian to the raspberry pi image later, so the user/group resolves to the name. But it'll show up as 1001:1001 normally as that's my uid/gid.)
