This patch makes fink default to using --build-as-nobody when building packages. Some packages can't be built this way, so a new info file field has been added, BuildAsNobody, which maintainers can set to false to override the default. --no-build-as-nobody can be used from the command line to override as well. Also, a decision needs to be made about what to do with the passwd package, since the current one would probably need to be made Essential for this feature to work properly.
