Potential warning: 10.3.9 disables SUID/SGID flag

Hmm, this seems to be a sneaky thing on the part of Apple, if you think about it.

The only times you would use setuid binaries are when you need a way of running a binary as another user, like the article states.

Now, for example, say you are running a mailserver on your 10.3.9 box ... it can no longer deliver mail as the user? Ouch.

It seems to me that 10.3.9 basically destroys the ability to use the OS as a server?

Ugh.

This can't be right ... must be my paranoid delusions.

So, anyway, how do we re-enable setuid functionality?
