I don't see any pain here. Most projects have it that way. Even before
you start oracle installer you must create a user. Another prominent
example would be apache httpd.
When i check packages here on my system i find 22 times useradd in
rpm-scripts. So it is quite common to handle these things in packaging.
Also here i see a problem here if you call useradd in configure you
cannot run configure anymore as ordinary user if, and that is exactly
what you do while packaging.
