NetBSD rat 5.0 NetBSD 5.0 (GENERIC)
The BUILDING files examples all specify -U (which is really good progress as the documentation is strongly encouraging a non-privileged build).

Can I encourage the next step which is to make that the only build style?

I think that this is a sensible request.
At least, making MKUNPRIVED=yes the default, -U a no-op,
and implementating a separate option to set MKUNPRIVED=no
(or just require -V MKUNPRIVED=no).

I'll look into different methods.
