  biology/linux-foldingathome needs to run as root?
  (also: update to 5.0.4)
          Upon installing FoldingAtHome I ran the software from a
          user account only to find that I was stuck in a loop of
          trying to enter configuration options. Shortly thereafter
          I realized that it was trying to write to
          /usr/local/share/foldingathome, and therefore requires being
          run as root to write there unless one changes permissions
          there. Seing as this isn't installed with a startup script
          for daemonization, and running as root seems a little
          excessive for this application, should this be adapted to
          run from a user account or set up to be able to start at
  And from maintainer:
          This diff updates the port to version 5.04, and adds
          support to running as normal user using ~/.fah
