Yes, thanks.. I just mass 755'd the damn thing and it worked.. I'll worry
about proper permissions later on.

As for the Error message itself, it was just unclear to me as I thought
perhaps it was just not finding a particular include file or something.
Perhaps add "Did you check permissions? then need to be X" into the error
message for the sanity check for lamers like me?
 :)


Defaintly some documentation on the build stuff would be snazzy.  That was
the drawing factor for me to really want to play with it besides the
obvious openwall security mindset..
