I dunno, there's more to type that way and it's much easier to goof
by, say, forgetting the -p in the untar. Not that I've ever done that
Why not have build.sh inspect the permissions on, say,
$DESTDIR/usr/bin/su and complain if -U is wrong? In the unlikely event
that su ceases to be setuid root or moves to a different directory we
can always update build.sh accordingly.
