I've been compiling as a non-root user for a long time, and this is the
first complaint I've gotten from it. So I suspect the problem has been
introduced since 3.17. And the last time I emailed the list was 1
Sept., so I suspect the problem had been introduced since then.

"When we talk of civilization, we are too apt to limit the meaning of
the word to its mere embellishments, such as arts and sciences; but
the true distinction between it and barbarism is, that the one
presents a state of society under the protection of just and
well-administered law, and the other is left to the chance government
of brute force."
