Description

On a fresh installation (OpenIndiana 2019-05), the command

# pwck

emits four warnings:

uucp:x:5:5:uucp Admin:/usr/lib/uucp:
        Login directory not found

nuucp:x:9:9:uucp Admin:/var/spool/uucppublic:/usr/lib/uucp/uucico
        Login directory not found
        Optional shell file not found

gdm:x:50:50:GDM Reserved UID:/var/lib/gdm:
        Login directory not found

upnp:x:52:52:UPnP Server Reserved UID:/var/coherence:/bin/ksh
        Login directory not found

Deleting three of these accounts causes no problem:

   userdel nucp gdm upnp

Deleting the account "uucp" should be done with caution as it
appears in some cron/at-related files.

Note: the command "grpck" emits no warning.
