Default rpm build howto

Hello, this is my first try at building rpms. All the documentation out there states to build rpms as a regular user and not root. Now I know why they suggest that, however I'm running into a problem because I need to run the user/groupadd commands during the rpm build process and therefore my rpm build is failing, because I don't have root access. So, apart from running the rpm build as root is there any other way (through the spec file?) to get around this? Thanks.
