Dmitry, thank you very much!  The problem really was with the / directory
permissions.  Errr.. great experience :-)

2All: I've just created a wiki page with an instruction on Owl-based
template creation actually based on the instruction published by Galaxy on
this list 2 years ago.  The instruction contains more details (e.g. how to
use 'make installworld'), some links, the notice about "chmod 755 /", and
also --ostemplate instead of (erroneous) --os-template.  However, the
instruction perhaps needs to be improved further, so everyone's welcome to
take a part :-)  It is found here:

Thanks for cooperation!
