Ok for the longest time, I thought this was an armv4l/rpm
problem.  Now I'm not too certain.  When I rebuild
dev-2.6-2.src.rpm it gets some permissions wrong.  The ones
I know are /dev/null and /dev/zero.  These used to be
[root@zhadum SPECS]# ls -l /dev/null /dev/zero
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root       1,   3 Jun 25  1998 /dev/null
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root       1,   5 May  5  1998 /dev/zero

But are now:
[root@zhadum dev]# ls -l null zero
crw-r--r--   1 root     root       1,   3 May  5  1998 null
crw-r--r--   1 root     root       1,   5 May  5  1998 zero

Looking in the spec file, I see that the `p' option was not
used when untaring.  Adding it in seems to fix things.

The Raw Hide dev-2.6-3 rpm uses -p when untarring.
Please reopen this bug if using that src.rpm doesn't fix your
problem.
