 First, you should run 'mkcat' as the user 'gnats'. mkcat is installed in 
 /usr/local/libexec/gnats by default. Section A.2.1 of the GNATS manual 
 specifies that this directory should be added to the default path of the 
 'gnats' user.
 The manual is currently being revised for GNATS 4 (I am working on it at 
 this very moment), but the installation instructions haven't been changed 
 much. Granted, GNATS installation requires a little bit of knowledge about 
 things such as mail aliases, crontabs etc., but I can't see that the guide 
 is that hard to follow if you have some experience with system 
 administration. Is there anything in particular you're thinking of?
