Trying to use the USERS and SHAREOWN functionalities

Are there any examples of how to use the USERS functionality together
with the SHAREOWN functionality in a port makefile?  I'm working on
updating the ecartis port to use standard functionality for its user
ID, but can't seem to tell how to make sure that the USERS are created
before files are installed, and that installed files are then owned by
the user that is created.
