Uhm, it seems mkinstalldirs can't set users or groups anymore at all, so
I've pushed a followup commit which makes backends/Makefile only call it
in a way it understands. Maybe there's one or two things that can be
removed now (or I'm having a brown-paperbag moment and this all needs to
be reversed).

Anyway, the original question still stands.

Ever noticed that common sense isn't really all that common?
