Issue #3332 has been updated by geobarrod.

I detected the bug and reported it to @tuxillo via email when I delete that second and strange (for me) account with 'uid 0' called 'toor', for the simple reason that I don't like having several accounts with root privileges . I said about modifying the 'pw' command because at the end, by default, there is another account created with 'uid 0' that doesn't make sense to me; I hope to read from some DragonFlyBSD or FreeBSD developer explain the history, practical and/or logical use of the 'toor' account some day.

Back on topic, the error at the end of the 'build-world' successful compilation is there, and of course, I prefer it to be fixed the way the 'pw-update.sh' script takes that final step, which returns an error that scares the inexperienced user and I suppose baffles the experienced user.
