This is what I do as well. I don't like 'sudo', and if I need to do
something as root, then I just use 'su'. I don't think we should force
people to have to have 'sudo' on their systems for this singular task.

Can anyone recall why we don't build as root in the first place? As far
as my memory serves me, it's to do with how the permissions are set
during compiling.
