Issue #3332 has been updated by daftaupe.

Re-reading this whole thing, I don't really understand the role of that user called toor. Is there any use for it ? It has no shell associated actually.

Running grep through our codebase returns :
<pre><code class="shell">
/usr/src % grep -r "toor" *
etc/periodic/security/300.chkuid0:	sed -e '/^root 0$/d' -e '/^toor 0$/d' |
etc/master.passwd:toor:*:0:0::0:0:Bourne-again Superuser:/root:
etc/mail/aliases:toor:	root
lib/libc/gen/pwcache.c:	if (strcmp(name, "toor") == 0) {
[some non-interesting junk being returned]

I guess if one doesn't want it, he might just delete it and building stuff should still work.

I'll try to build/install world once that user is deleted, let's see how that goes.
