uid for the perlball

The best solution I know of at this time is to simply run perlbal on a
high port. We use a firewall rule in iptables to redirect port 80 to that
high port. In shorewall config format, it is:
# Allow incoming HTTP to perlbal running on 7080
REDIRECT net 7080 tcp 80
This way you can run perlbal as its own user.
Note: if you're not running as root, make sure you don't have ulimits set
for the perlbal user, especially "nofiles"
