chkrootkit and 4.10-prerelease issues?



Update:  I've received a number of replies stating others have the same
problem.  I've also received a number of replies basically telling me
"reinstall noob".  

Obviously, I've reinstalled the port.  A fresh 4.10-PR as cvsup'd 
" FreeBSD 4.10-PRERELEASE #0: Sat May  1 09:32:14 EDT 2004" has the same
problem.  Unless the cvs source is trojaned, I'm leaving this as a false
positive; just like 5.x shows.
