  I have written a couple of shellscripts to "profile" certain files.

Too many shellscripts considered harmful ;-) Most of the time it can
be done with cfengine itself, e.g.

      group = ( "group1" )
      group = ( "group2" )

   /etc/conf ->! /etc/conf.d/conf.DEFAULT  nofile=kill
   /etc/conf ->! /etc/conf.d/conf.$(group) nofile=kill
   /etc/conf ->! /etc/conf.d/conf.$(host)  nofile=kill

OK, then I have to redefine my groups a bit
so that they don't overlap as they do now.
This way I can work around this issue that annoys me most.

It still does not explain why cfengine complains about
redefining a macro while it should not. :)
