This was a bug.  Pull master up to at least this commit:

Ideally you'd be using the bmcweb.socket file for socket activation, which
defaults to 443.  port 18080 only happens when you launch bmcweb by hand.
I’m guessing you copied the binary over by hand and didn’t do a make

The login groups should be made automatically by the recipe.  If you're
using it, and they're not present, this might be worth a bug getting filed.

Yee Haw!

> On the evb build, it is trying to build images that fail when checking
file size. I think this is because meta-phosphor has IMAGE_FSTYPES += with
some mtb images, and meta-rasberrypi has IMAGE_FSTYPES ?= and I assume +=
wins or mixes. I think if I add IMAGE_FSTYPES = in local.conf, it would
override it and probably work.

This might be related to rpi using ext4 images, not squashfs images.

Groan.... yep.  Highly recommend a ridiculously overpowered build machine
for yocto builds.
