Well, so far you said you want to autobuild some packages and that it MUST run
as root, with no good reason why.

There's no reason to change the way the software gets built either. It seems
to me you're trying to avoid some extra work by running everything as root.

If you share more of what you're trying to do, and your goals, perhaps we can
help more. So far it seems like a mild XY problem.
