I have a test machine where some users changed a number of directories to be owned by "www:www" by mistake. The machine was unusable. After rebuilding from sources the machine was usable, but I noticed that a number of files still were owned by "www". In particular I saw files in /usr/sbin, /usr/bin.. and likely other places.

Shouldn't rebuilding from source fix the ownership?
I followed the steps in "Common items" from /usr/src/UPDATING, like have done many times before...

       make buildworld
       make kernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE
       <reboot in single user>                         [3]
       mergemaster -p                                  [5]
       make installworld
       make delete-old
       mergemaster                                     [4]

Since it is a test machine, if there are still odd issues I may just re-do the whole machine.. and newfs.. but was puzzled that rebulding world would leave binarines with the wrong ownership.
