   Yes, ugh.

   No, not really.  I don't like running long builds as root either;  
what I do for geda is create my destination dir (in my case, /usr/ 
local/geda), chown it to my own username, exit the root shell, then  
run the whole "make install" process.  After testing, I "chown -R  
root /usr/local/geda" and I'm done.

   For most everything else, I do the builds as myself, and only  
become root for installation.
