Description marcc 2008-04-24 23:33:07 UTC
With ROOT set to a place other than "/", users, groups and cracklib file aren't created inside $ROOT after a emerge system -ave.

This happens with normal and binary packages installations to $ROOT.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.ROOT=/TEST emerge avahi cracklib

Actual Results:  
No users/groups exist, nor the cracklib file

Expected Results:  
All binary files of the package and the emerge time created users and groups should be inside $ROOT.
