 Hm... oops.

 I admit I didn't look at (or look for) the documentation for
 SETGIDGAME, but now that I have I don't think it would have stopped me
 from drawing the conclusion that I did.

 It should probably be renamed SETGIDGAMES, and the documentation
 should say that it's not supposed to be set by packages. (Otherwise
 doubtless other people will continue to make the same mistake. As of
 yesterday three games set it explicitly: tanked, xgalaga, and
 xscrabble.)

 Probably a better long-term approach would be to have it go by putting
 setgid in $(PKG_OPTIONS).foo, but that's also probably a lot of work.

 As for fixing angband... before anyone goes in and starts patching it,
 it's probably a good idea to update to the latest version. And to
 clean up the divergence between angband-tty and angband-x11, too.

 Sigh. And here I thought this was an easy one...

 Well, I did that mistake too, so can't blame ya.

 I don't think it makes much sense to not have it on by default when
 installing with privileges.  I'll start a discussion on tech-pkg.

 Yeah.  I'll ping the maintainer.

 Famous last words.

 Well, from a security perspective, it's probably a good idea not to
 install random games (many of which are thoroughly insecure) setgid
 without asking, just so they can keep a global high scores file.

 Most such games don't just crap out instantly if run unprivileged,
 though, like angband seems to.

 It seems like it ought to be controllable on a per-package basis and
 ought to default to on for some packages and not others... which the
 current scheme doesn't support.

 I'm not familiar enough with pkgsrc to go hack this up myself, at
 least not without spending a fair amount of time on it, so tech-pkg is
 probably a good idea.
