No, unprivileged build.sh is quite capable of generating syspkgs; use
"build.sh -U ... syspkgs". I'd call this usage "supported", but it just
creates the syspkgs (in RELEASEDIR/MACHINE/binary/syspkgs), it doesn't
invoke pkg_* tools in any way. As I mentioned before, there's no easy
or supported way to install or use syspkgs.
