I ran into exactly the same problem under FreeBSD, and Fergal
came up with the solution.

The permissions on the /usr/local/rt/lib/generic_templates directory
are wrong.  You have to chown -R it to rt:rt, chmod 755 the directory,
and 644 the files within.  Currently it cannot be read to copy the
generic templates over to the new queue template directory.

You have to do this every time you 'make upgrade' or it'll break
again.  I've been meaning to patch the Makefile for ages but never
got around to it; ill mail the diff here if/when I do.
