re: kern/55349 (/dev/ugen* requires root access, so packages like ham/rtl-sdr have to be run as root)

they don't have to be run by root, you can adjust the permissions
on /dev/ugen* to match your requirements.

it's pretty annoying since the naming is not great, and you have
to either hard code your kernel ugenN or hope they don't renumber.

i run ups-nut-usb as 'nut' user/group, with those device nodes
group 'nut' read-write.

this is still a pain and we should be able to do better, but it
doesn't have to mean running as root.
