Is this something the package needs to fix, or has the destdir support

It was always kind of a hack to limit the amount of work necessary for
the packager. Handling unreadable files wasn't on the list.

Well, the funny thing is that the destdir framework is used to set file permissions such that the regular user cannot read (or package) the file.

Unless news/inn does something very wrong, this case requires at least the option to package the file with the same credentials as the install.
