I like to have my packages buildable by non-root users. This change
breaks that unless I patch.

Same issue, and the ServerAdmin would end up pointing to me by

I think it's a bad idea to have my build machine's name embedded into
the config file.

To summarize, these are great changes for people building from the
tarball, but bad for package builders if we are trying to avoid lots
of patching. When this is incorporated into 1.3.1-dev, how about
options to control these changes, or better yet, a global option
--packagebuild which will disable this sort of environment adaptation?
