The shared library local/lib/libpython2.6.dylib/dll/so is created with permissions 555.
Is there any reason for this?
I noticed this, as I needed to rebase it on Cygwin, and needed to change it to 755 manually.
Can this be made 755 all the time?

Thanks,
Dima

I had the same issue with "make micro_release" tripping over a non-writeable libpython2.6.so in http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/11743#comment:2

My vote would be to set permissions to 755. But note that if you modify libpython then currently running python processes can and will segfault. With great power comes great responsibility, as usual ;-)
