Nope.  Here's what it is: my source tree is checked out as my regular
user, and src/nrelease/root and src/nrelease/installer are cpdup'ed to
the release tree as part of 'make customizeiso' in the nrelease
Makefile.  They are, of course, duplicated exactly; thus, they are still
owned by uid 1000 on the release image.

Maybe an mtree after the cpdup is called for here?  Anyway, I now know
the immediate fix: chown those root skeleton directories to root...
