Me too, but why not make an exception with jhbuild software. You already
made an exception by breaking the guidelines of your package management
system: according to it, each package must have its own package user,
but with jhbuild, stuff built all have jhbuild as package user. Either
that or find out how to make jhbuild stop installing everything under
--prefix. You might need to change the code though.
