Re: [alpine-aports] [PATCH V2] main/dnsmasq: change default user/group, add config directory, cleanups in init script.

Yes, dnsmasq supports command-line user/group. But I think it's better to
set them correctly at compile time to get rid of unnecessary entries in
init scripts and it would start correctly from command line without any
additional flags just out of the box.

To compile with DBUS it's need to explictly set HAVE_DBUS. So DBUS_* flags
are useless.

I think it's have no sense to make a patch to change 1 line in config file.
But you decide.
