                     13: To create packages that are usable by anyone, pkgsrc currently requires that
                     14: packages be built with superuser privileges. It is already possible to use
                     15: pkgsrc in great parts without such privileges, but there haven't been many
                     16: thoughts about how the resulting binary packages should be specified. For

                     18: as long as they are not publicly overwritable.  In the end, the binary packages
                     19: should be as independent from the build environment as possible.
