   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
   17: example, many packages don't care at all about the owner/group of their files,
   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.
