Sudo, Tru64 4.0F, and lpc

If lpc uses getuid() to check for root then it should work OK with
sudo since sudo sets the real and effective uids to 0.  I've used
sudo with lpc plenty of times on various operating systems.

Now, if Tru64's lpc uses getluid() that would probably return the
uid of the invoking sudo user.
