Kind of same functionality which is provided by FreeBSD Ports system. Or maybe such way/scripts already exists? I just wrote my custom post install scripts for now, but that post install operation is very common.

I just added these modules to the build server. Thanks for sending them in!

We currently to not have any automated/standard way of adding 
users/groups for PBI installations. They way you did it is almost 
exactly they way that we handle adding them as well (I always use our 
virtualbox-ose post-install script as an example), so no worries about 
how you got it working.

Perhaps in the future we could create some generic group/user add script 
for the PBI process and put a couple more flags in the pbi.conf file to 
list the users/groups to add.
(Example: PBI_ADDUSER="(username)" and PBI_ADDGROUP="(groupname)"  )

Thanks for the suggestion!
