remove never working setuid helper code from the build-system.
refer to the Changelog for a longer reason. In conclusion, this is what people expect, this is what Package Managers patch away for portability, and we can't use install(1) for this because it's not a portable tool.

+ Remove setuid helpers. They never worked as intended. The
+ fixed version is not portable and the defacto good way to
+ handle this which is most portable is to let package managers
+ handle this (as they do right now, the good ones), and let
+ people handle this who read the documentation.
+ This commit removes what would be patched out by the majority
+ of package managers, which is setuid handling in Makefiles.
+ It is very likely that no one will notice this code is gone.

Added support for doas, use it in some places conditionally
if sudo is not present. Fixed sudo detection. -ng0
