The last build line could be:

install -D -m 0755 $SRC/mandb.cron $PKG/etc/cron/daily/mandb

instead of:

install -D -o root -g root -m 0755 $SRC/mandb.cron $PKG/etc/cron/daily/mandb

The change shouldn't affect root or fakeroot builds, but it will make the build succeed when running as non-root without fakeroot (or similar apps). Indeed, the user won't hit this issue unless is building as non-root/fakeroot and is ignoring the footprint mismatches (group/owner).
This task depends upon
