[Setup] Buildout file permissions wrong?

Hi Jim,

I've checked the Unified Installer's install.sh, and it does set the umask
correctly. Is there any chance that your /opt isn't world-readable?

By the way, I hadn't noticed the "-R" flag in your chmod. That is going to
result in permissions that are too loose, and would allow anyone with shell
access to read the initial password and the database.
