There are two obvious issues with allocating uids for pkgsrc
a) uid range, which needs to differ between OSs and sites
b) For a given OS/site, installing pkga then pkgb should give the
same uid for pkga as installing pkgb then pkga.
One solution would be to assign a default pkg_uid_base on a per OS
basis, and then each package account has a unique pkg_uid_offset.
