Ok, I have now a reliable test case.  make install in the Hurd source makes
it fail with EPERM (which I meant rather than ENOPERM) every time, but at
different places.

It fails when creating a file, creating symlink, changing the mode.  Maybe
at other situations, too.  We will have to look at the authentification
