Thanks for the patch, but there's a reason for using 544 here.  It's
the right gid when using mkgroup and it should be unambiguous, even
if the group file has multiple entries for the admins group.  I like
to have the 0 as group, too, but I have left the 544 entry in so that
scripts relying on the gid still work.  When you use `ls -l' you still
get the gid 0 this way:

  $ grep "S-1-5-32-544" /etc/group
