      Description

      The user nobody, or group nobody, might not exist on some system, causing "make install" to fail. We should check for some common alternatives here, and/or provide switches to configure to specify which user and group to use (two switches). For example, on Ubuntu the user "nobody" is a member of the group "nogroup", causing our install breaks.
