I had to modify the Makefile.in files to get it packaged. There was no
DESTDIR variable to install it in a buildroot and you force user and
group id. This is not possible cause the build is normally running as a
user and the packaging system sets the appropriate rights then.

but installing as non-root makes Jailkit unusable. So for non-packagers (people that build from source) the 'make install' should fail if it cannot install files as user root.. Is there a better way of doing this?
