at least three pkgs use sysutils/addnerd to add new users.

That should be changed to useradd(8).

And that needs to be handled differently as it currently be used.

It looks like that at least the ammanda-common package creates
the user backup, but that won't work for a binary package.
There is nothing which installs that user on other systems.
That user is only created on the system where you build and
installed the package.
