That'd still be a bug, then.  If those files get installed by some other
user than the one trying to use them they'd be inaccessible, both on
UN*X and Windows.

I've checked what openSUSE does and they just enter the build script
with a 'umask 022'.  I didn't find any patch that fixes up the
permissions later, So that seems to be enough.  I'd try to build that
way first. [later…] Yup, just setting the umask to some 022 before
building the packages does the right thing on Cygwin, too.
