Thanks for this. However, on my nethack package, I got the warnings:

 W: nethack: setuid-binary usr/lib/games/nethack/nethack -rwxr-sr-x
 W: nethack: setuid-binary usr/lib/games/nethack/recover -rwxr-sr-x
 W: nethack: non-standard-file-perm var/lib/games/nethack/logfile -rw-rw-r--
 W: nethack: non-standard-file-perm var/lib/games/nethack/perm -rw-rw-r--

First off, the 'nethack' and 'recover' binaries are setgid, not
setuid. And second, all the files are owned by group 'games' -- is
this somehow against policy?
