Hi,
i have discovered some interesting things concerning the chown/lchown
syscall:

gcc -O2 -s -o usermod usermod.o ../libmisc/libmisc.a ../lib/libshadow.a -lcrypt
../libmisc/libmisc.a(chowndir.o): In function `chown_tree':
chowndir.c(.text+0x248): warning: lchown is not implemented and will always fail

I discovered a anomaly there when trying to compile current strace
which has sys_lchown which is sys_chown in current glibc and fails
to compile thereof.

I am not shure where the actual problem is but there
is someone more knowledged ...

Flo
