Unfortunately I still have the following problem:

[root at bild-mandriva2006 dist.i686-pc-linux-gnu]# ls -l dist.i686-pc-linux-gnu/
insgesamt 40
drwxr-sr-x   3 1338  204 4096 Jan  3 14:21 demolocation/
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Jan  3 14:22 docs/
drwxr-xr-x   4 root root 4096 Jan  3 14:22 bwidget/
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 4096 Jan  3 14:22 fonts/

Although 'tar' is used in the 'builddemolocation' target in the
main Makefile, the owner is still preserved (1338 above).
It must be the owner compiling GRASS (here, root), otherwise the
virtual session to generate the HTML manuals fails.

Any ideas?

 id -un
be used to make a chown of demolocation/ after copying it?
