I have built over a thousand packages as non-root. (Including running our
bulk builds framework.)
I used to manually set SU_CMD, CHGRP, CHOWN, etc. But now we can use the
mk/unprivileged.mk. Just set UNPRIVILEGED=yes.
One problem is the users and groups. So manually set any as needed (like
MAILMAN_USER=me and MAILMAN_GROUP=me).
