Description

The /usr/bin/install binary is needed by some packages (such as squid) during their installation procedures, but it is missing from a fresh 2.3.2 install. It is there on upgraded systems.

It appears to be in the base tarball:

: tar tvzf /usr/local/share/pfSense/base.txz | grep 'bin.install'
-r-xr-xr-x  0 root       wheel    32096 Jul 20 11:34 ./usr/bin/install

But it is not present on the running system:

: which install
/usr/bin/install
: pkg which /usr/bin/install
/usr/bin/install was not found in the database

I also tried 2.3.1-RELEASE and 2.3-RELEASE, all of which appear to be missing the binary just after a fresh install.

Temporary workaround:

tar xv -C / -f /usr/local/share/pfSense/base.txz ./usr/bin/install

New installs on snapshots are fine, fixes are on existing packages for current versions so it's addressed from a user perspective.
