>Description:
after freshly installing 7.0.1 i386 on a laptop,
I did a cvs checkout of the pkgsrc current tree.

noticed when hitting the first gnu-configure package
that the mk/gnu-config directory has the following:
> bash-4.3$ ls  -la /usr/pkgsrc/mk/gnu-config/
> total 256
> drwxr-xr-x   3 richard  wheel    512 Jul 25 14:57 .

> -rw-r--r--   1 richard  wheel  10179 Jul 25 14:57 missing

which caused the following when building the first gnu package:
> --- ./configure ---
> CDPATH="${ZSH_VERSION+.}:" && cd . && /bin/sh /tmp/pkgsrc/x11/xproto/work/xproto-7.0.29/missing autoconf

> *** [./do-not-use-config.h.in] Error code 126
>
> make: stopped in /tmp/pkgsrc/x11/xproto/work/xproto-7.0.29


To compare, on SunOS the cvs directory above comes out as follows:

 For a strange value of "fake" - it obeys your umask.

 At least in the base tree we consider everything requiring exec permissions
 in the source tree a bug and fix it.

 How is this to work for pkgsrc then? 

 Is there some script to fixup infrastructure scripts apparently needing to be executable?
 Or is the error encountered perhaps more a pkgsrc infrastructure 'bug'?

 Must say I haven't run across this before:-O (and I only use cvs for the NetBSD project repos)

 I do, including on TNF bulk builders.

 Okay, I tried a workaround to the wrapper invocation of pkgsrc's missing as follows:

 This seems to work in the case of x11/xproto and as well in another case encountered
 textproc/json-c.  It would be nice to here if it fixes the TNF bulk builds.

 BTW, I'm find if Martin closes this issue as not really being a bug in NetBSD cvs
 since it appears to be more a pkgsrc tools wrappering issue.

 I'm missing something -- he said nothing about what his umask was, and
 if he had his umask set to 111 or something silly like that, it's his
 fault.

 sure, but as it is it ought to work, and it does for me, including in
 an i386 chroot...

 ?? how is that possible?
 can I see a log from an unprivileged build for xproto and json-c, for example?
 and ls -la for /usr/pkgsrc/mk/gnu-config

 Depends on what broke your case...

 ...are you maybe using a volume mounted noexec or something like that?

 There isn't any need to build, because the files get the right
 permissions:

 Is this possibly a cousin to https://mail-index.netbsd.org/current-users/2016/04/04/msg029164.html?

 Try with CVSROOT=anoncvs@anoncvs.netbsd.org.

 It's definitely possible that the permissions are wrong on the mirror;
 the way CVS stores execute permissions is by giving the ,v file
 execute permission or not, so it's fragile in some circumstances.

 Unlikely, as the issue in that thread was caused by a forgotten "alias" 
 in my .cshrc file.   In other words, that one was "pilot error".

 Ok, well at least now we know what's happening.

 We should get the permissions on the mirror fixed (who needs to be
 poked for that to happen?) but also it's a good idea to pursue a patch
 that avoids needing execute permission in the pkgsrc tree. There are
 reasons for that besides cvs being fragile, the most significant
 probably being that on some OSes (e.g. Solaris) you don't want to use
 /bin/sh. (These particular scripts probably account for Solaris, but
 others might not, and who knows what other ancient buggix-type systems
 someone might want to use pkgsrc on...)

 The patch proposed uses TOOLS_SHELL which on SunOS is typically bash or pdksh
 (if bootstrapped with --full) or dash with the wip patchset from jperkin@

 I have not had occasion to test it out in a full bulk build (neither on NetBSD
 nor SunOS) but it seems fine on the packages previously affected by the issue.

 It's me.
 I do a rsync --chmod=D755,F644 because on occasion I did get wrong
 read permissions.

 I added -E, lets see if this fixes the problem.

 Except cvs update -C doesn't seem to update my current tree in-situ.

 Is the only way to do it means delete first the files then cvs update?

 NAK. TOOLS_PATH as the name implies is really meant to be path.

 In my original test patch, I put ${TOOLS_SHELL} before ${TOOLS_PATH} in TOOLS_SCRIPT.

 I opted for the above since given the '?=' (it could possibly be overridden), in which case
 it's not necessarily the pkgsrc 'missing' being discussed.

 I agree that this isn't correct given there are other tools that I use TOOLS_PATH for in scripts.

 Perhaps either holding off, or putting some execution logic in the wrapper itself if test -x fails
 for POSIX shell scripts (or others) is going to need to be done.

 Right... might be something other than a shell script, so feeding it
 to the shell is wrong.

 This makes it all a pain.

 Is it limited to being one pathname, or is it legitimate for it to be
 a path in the $PATH sense? That would make it even more problematic.

 One could put in something like

    if [ ! -x "${TOOLS_PATH.foo}" ]; then
 	TOOLS_INTERP.foo=$(${TOOL_SED} < "${TOOLS_PATH.foo}" -e 's/^#! *//;1q')
    fi

 but this is going to slow everything down a lot...
