[PATCH] Set also the group of installed files

Currently the files in the lisp and etc directories are being
installed using a pair of tars, followed by a recursive chown.
This however adjusts only the user, but not the group ownership.

When building Emacs in a sandboxed environment (as it is the case
for Gentoo), the installed files will afterwards belong to root but
to the group of the build user. Note that this also doesn't match the
behaviour of install(1) which sets both user and group ownership.

See patch included below.

* Makefile.in (set_installuser): Also set the group, in order
to match install(1) behavior.

 ### Install the files that are machine-independent.
 ### Most of them come straight from the distribution; the exception is
