I'm not sure about Solaris-2, but on the original AT&T SysVr4's, there's
a define in one of the <sys/*.h> files that gives the correct value. I
believe it's <sys/param.h>, and the define is UID_NOBODY, and the value
is 60002. There is also a define something like GID_NOBODY for the
appropriate group id. Of course the uid and gid of the user "nobody"
should be equal to these values too....
