[Pkg-shadow-devel] Bug in --disable-subordinate-ids in shadow-4.2.1

Hello Pkg-shadow-devel!

When trying to build and install shadow 4.2.1 without support for
subordinate IDs, I found issues both with compiling and installation.

The compilation bug is because of a missing guard clause in process_flags
in usermod.c; adding an appropriate #ifdef block fixes it.

The installation bug is similarly because of a missing guard clause; the
installation process tries to setuid on newuidmap and newgidmap even when
those programs aren't built.

The attached patch corrects both problems!
