more stuff to the username/groupname confusion:
at the end of ./configure --prefix=$GNUNET_PREFIX
--with-extractor=$LE_PREFIX   (as root)
there are some instructions showing again a mix and mess of gnunetdns, gnunet


configure: ********************************************
Please make sure NOW that you have created a user and group 'gnunet'
and additionally a group 'gnunetdns':
        addgroup gnunetdns
        adduser gnunet

Make sure that '/var/lib/gnunet' is owned (and writable) by user
'gnunet'.  Then, you can compile GNUnet with

After that, run (if necessary as 'root')
        make install
to install everything.

Each GNUnet user should be added to the 'gnunet' group (may
require fresh login to come into effect):
        adduser  gnunet
(run the above command as root once for each of your users, replacing
"" with the respective login names).  If you have a global IP
address, no further configuration is required.

Optionally, download and compile gnunet-gtk to get a GUI for
file-sharing and configuration.  This is particularly recommended
if your network setup is non-trivial, as gnunet-setup can be
used to test in the GUI if your network configuration is working.
gnunet-setup should be run as the "gnunet" user under X.  As it
does very little with the network, running it as "root" is likely
also harmless.  You can also run it as a normal user, but then
you have to copy ~/.gnunet/gnunet.conf" over to the "gnunet" user's
home directory in the end.


what is the correct way to do this? please fix these mixed up terms
according to what really is being meant here.
