yes, dont run rancid-run as any user but the ranciduser or whomever owns
the rancid repository (/var/rancid).  you can run clogin, rancid, hrancid,
etc as any user, but not in the respository.

not necessarily; rancid.conf adjusts the PATH based on the configure

right; flogin will work with some procurves, those which are foundry OEMs
