[ngw] strange file ownership

The files were owned by build/users when it was created. Since you don't
have a "build" user, it gave the file just something it could grant.
I've had a couple of instances lately where someone extracted the tar ball
on one server, and then copied the file structure to another - in those
instances, the install would not launch. I did a chmod -R +x on the
entire structure to get the install to work.
It's not something I would lose sleep over.
I love my job and you can too!
