Hi ports@,

Greeting from me!

I use -current ports tree, and try to build sysutils/coreutils, and
get following errors:

checking whether mknod can create fifo without root privileges...
configure: error: in `/usr/ports/pobj/coreutils-8.29/coreutils-8.29':
configure: error: you should not run configure as root (set
FORCE_UNSAFE_CONFIGURE=1 in environment to bypass this check)
See `config.log' for more details
*** Error 1 in . (/usr/ports/infrastructure/mk/bsd.port.mk:2688
'do-configure': @for d in
/usr/ports/pobj/coreutils-8.29/coreutils-8.29;  do...)

I try use "export FORCE_UNSAFE_CONFIGURE=1 && make install", but still
not take effect.

Besides change the owner to non-root, is there any method to bypass
this issue? Thanks very much in advance!

Best Regards
Nan Xiao
