>How-To-Repeat:
1. Run Debian 8, install necessary building prerequisites.
2. Download sets from here: http://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-7.0.1/source/sets/
3. Extract sets and cd usr/src.
4. sudo ./build.sh -m evbarm -a earmv7hf -u release
5. (After receiving the above errors, try again with 'su' instead of 'sudo')

 It would be helpful to know what file this is associated with. Try
 "grep gname=root" in METALOG.sanitized (I think that's the right file)
 which appears in destdir.evbarm, which according to your build log is
 here: /home/np/netbsd/usr/src/obj/destdir.evbarm

 Most likely what's happening is that earlier in the build the build
 host group name is leaking in where it shouldn't be.

 Thanks for the quick response, David. After talking with some people in the
 irc channel, they strongly suggested that the error was due to running
 build.sh in privileged mode. They also suggested I start over and rebuild
 with the '-U' flag, so I followed their advice. The build just finished
 successfully. Unfortunately I removed the original directory that I build
 as root, so I don't have the sanitized METALOG file. I wish I had kept it,
 in case others have come across this issue. I guess the workaround is just
 to run build.sh unprivileged.

 Thanks,

 Nick

 Hmm... the METALOG files are what's produced by an unprivileged build
 in place of chown/chmod in $DESTDIR, so you wouldn't have had them
 anyway.

 I'm not sure privileged cross-builds are expected to work at all...

 FWIW, I expect them to work
 (and they work for netbsd-current hosts)

 NetBSD normally has the correct lists of groups, at least if the host is
 of comparative vintage as the sources to be build. That's extremely
 unlikely for cross-building from non-NetBSD.

 Yes, I do understand the difference - but the question is what is the
 easiest fix.

 Should we check & enforce existance of all needed uid/gids on the host?
 Or tanslate all named references to target integer ones?

 If there is no easy fix, we might make it officially desupported and
 fail early.

 I don't think there's any reason to expect it to work.

 There was some talk a while back about making all builds unprivileged,
 and that seems like a good plan too...
