Bug Description

When you give (as ordinary user) the command:

$ ikiwiki --setup /etc/ikiwiki/auto.setup

you get (after the questions have been answered) the following message:

# ikiwiki-update-wikilist: cannot write to /etc/ikiwiki/wikilist
# Failed to add you to the system wikilist file.
# (Probably ikiwiki-update-wikilist is not SUID root.)
# Your wiki will not be automatically updated when ikiwiki is upgraded.
