Bug#566113: /usr/lib/utempter/utempter has wrong group and permissions
I downloaded your package source and used it to create the two packages for
lenny. After installing package libutempter0, the
command 'ls -l /usr/lib/utempter/utempter' shows the following:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4848 2010-01-19 14:08 utempter
I think that these are not the correct permissions and ownerships, but that
the file must be owner root, group utmp with setgid bit set. debian/rules
tells that it was the intention of the package maintainer to set ownerships
and permissions like this, but that had no effect on the installed file.
By the way, in debian/rules the chmod and chown commands must be called in
opposite order, because chown removes the setgid bit.
