 FYI, I did get it sorted out, but strange more haven't run into this unless
my environment is screwy for some reason.

I had to set the USER name in the environment.   I looked at the
environment, and saw LOGNAME=rancid, but that I didn't see USER= rancid.
So in the crontab I set USER=rancid, and off everything went..
