Hmm, it says in IGNORE: This port uses an unregistered uid.  IMHO
everything is right: port creates new user/group (just as mysql-server
does).  Where else uid needs to be registered except in /etc/passwd?

Does that mean that I cannot leave this sort of things on behalf of the
user who's installing the port, and every non-root/nobody/etc service
must be taken special care of?  This seems odd.
