I prefer to complain if option don't make sense, rather than guessing
how to fix them. already has this code, to bomb if you try to
build as an unprivileged user without setting either -U (unprivileged)
or -E (expert mode):

        if ${do_build} || ${do_distribution} || ${do_release}; then
                if ! ${do_expertmode} && \
                    [ "$id_u" -ne 0 ] && \
                    [ "${MKUNPRIVED}" = "no" ] ; then
                        bomb "-U or -E must be set for build as an unprivileged
