I am not familiar with Mac OS X details.  But isn't Mac OS X based
upon BSD?  BSD does not have a /private.  I searched the web briefly
for Mac OS X and sudo but did not see any mention of a /private
directory.  But that does not prove that it does not exist, just that
I did not see anyone mentioning it.  I saw a lot of people talking
about using sudo on the Mac though.  It appears that is the default
superuser access mechanism.  Which seems like a good thing.

Anyone on the list know about Mac OS X and sudo and willing to comment?
