It simply proxies to fchmodat(), but as you cannot change mod for symlink on Linux it fails. This gives trouble to libarchive's bsdtar implementation that detects that platform provides lchmod, tries to use it while extracting archives containing symlinks and fails... ;-( For now I am just patching libarchive config.h to not use lchmod, but I would rather see musl do the right thing. :-) -- /o__ Our missions are peaceful -- not for conquest.
