preparing gentoo-ebuild, compiled OK, installed.

$ amcheck abc

** (process:20952): CRITICAL **: amcheck must not be setuid (0, 87)

~ $ ls -l /usr/sbin/amcheck
-rwsr-x--- 1 root amanda 60776 Dec 4 09:34 /usr/sbin/amcheck

What perms have to be applied then?

It would helpful to improve the error message to tell the admin what to
do, and not only what not to do.
