FreeBSD mount_fusefs: exit status 71 #206

There appear to be issues on FreeBSD (tested on 11 and 12) using the fuse.AllowOther() option.

Using the helloworld example, I was able to successfully compile and “mount” the example as expected.

By adding fuse.AllowOther(), compiling and running again I get the following:
mount helper error: mount_fusefs: /dev/fuse on /tank/onedrive: Operation not permitted Fatal error: failed to mount FUSE fs: mount_fusefs: exit status 71

Below is a snippet from hello.go that I edited

func main() {
        flag.Usage = usage

        if flag.NArg() != 1 {
        mountpoint := flag.Arg(0)

        c, err := fuse.Mount(
                fuse.VolumeName("Hello world!"),

We have found this as a result using rclone to mount remote cloud storage as a non-root user. I have raised a bug there as well which can be found here: ncw/rclone#2828

I was testing on FreeBSD 12 and hit the same issue as well.
