I committed it without this change since it appears to be a separate
problem, and could do with fleshing out...

Can you clarify the intent though?  For example, all of
{BIN,GAME,MAN,SHARE,DOC}{OWN,GRP} are changed to
UNPRIVILEGED_{USER,GROUP}.  Do you mean that there should be a
REAL_BINGRP with the old setting?

The same question applies for per-package users and groups.  Do you
mean that when changing DSPAM_USER, a REAL_DSPAM_USER should take the
original value?
