    I had the same problem when I ran mkdb.  I ended up creating the
/usr/local/com directory as root, then made it writeable by gnats 
(or anyone).  Don't make the '/usr/local/com/gnatsdb directory though
because the make script expects it not to exist.  I was able to run
mkdb fine after that, and I changed /usr/local/com back to 
non-writeable by others.
