[ic] Gentoo: Different syntax for su command

Upon installing IC on a new Gentoo box I found that the following does
su -c "/usr/local/interchange/bin/interchange -r" interch (this is
recommended during install/makecat)
Using this syntax you will get the following:
"The Interchange server must not be run as root."
instead I needed to use the following syntax:
su - interch -c "/usr/local/interchange/bin/interchange -r"
Gentoo uses sys-apps/shadow 4.0.5-r2 instead of the shadow-utils package
you find on Red Hat / Fedora etc.
Just thought I would pass this along in case anyone encounters this problem.
