Thanks... several people suggested using Perl, which I'd forgotten about,
so I did that and ended up with:
PERLWHOAMI = $(PERL) -e 'print scalar getpwuid($$>), "\n"'
WHOAMI = (whoami || /usr/ucb/whoami || $(PERLWHOAMI)) 2> /dev/null
which seems to work correctly. I'm not sure if everything currently works
for non-root make update, but it should mostly work; any additional bug
reports or fixes gratefully accepted. INN now uses a slightly modified
version of the standard autoconf/automake install-sh script, and support
for make -j should be much better now.
