: Adapt as necessary for your host system.  The -U is the important bit.

This is actually an old problem that is only noticed now because we can do
a full build as non-root.  If you look very closely, you'll note that the
*gid* of kernels in kern.tgz sets of days past is not "wheel" in most cases.
Some of them are rather unusual.

The real fix here is probably to $INSTALL_FILE the kernels into place, and
tar them up from there.  However, given the multiple-kern-sets scenario,
this may not be possible.
