"The first one" :)

Sabayon uses the "getgrent" call to enumerate the groups, and check for
membership.  The first one it comes across that the user's in, that's the
profile it applies.

I *think* the getgrent call retrieves things in /etc/group entry order, but if
you're pulling from ldap, that's sometimes undefined.

I guess a good question would be: given membership in multiple groups with
profiles, what SHOULD be the expected behavior?  Lowest alpabetical group name?
Lowest groupid?
