 The source files are owned by a normal user. When root unpacks the tar
 ball to some public place, e.g. /usr/src or /tmp, normal users may have
 write access to the source.

 To correct this, run the following command before packing the source code
 for publication:

 chown -R root:root mc-x.y.z
 chmod -R og-w mc-x.y.z
