Oops.  You've just reported a bug in the OpenVZ container templates.
Thank you!  The bug is not present in Owl "host systems" installed from
our ISOs (with those, /usr/src/world has user "build" as its owner).

No, it's not so simple.

We'll likely fix the bug in "make vztemplate", so the next set of
templates will match the ISOs in this respect.
