Subject: build.sh and -U confusion

I ran build.sh as me with -U and made a release. I then ran build.sh
as root to install, and didn't give -U. This was a script programming
error on my part, but could have been a regular human error.
I ended up with a system with files in e.g. /usr/bin owned by gdt,
with no suid bits. netstat didn't work, and I think sshd didn't
start. While I realize this was my fault, it would be nice if
./build.sh install without -U errored out if the build had METALOG
My release sets apparently have root-owned files in them, so I don't
understand what went wrong, other than it seems to be the lack of -U
to build.sh install.
