      Description

      When doing cvmfs_config chksetup and the alien cache directory is mounted with root squash (a legitimate security precaution, since only the cvmfs user needs to access it), the following errors are produced:

      Error: chunk directory /var/lib/cvmfs_clusterfs/v2.0/ref.mugqic/eb missing in alien   cache.
      Error: chunk directory /var/lib/cvmfs_clusterfs/v2.0/ref.mugqic/ec missing in alien   cache
      ....
      

      from this line:
      https://github.com/cvmfs/cvmfs/blob/devel/cvmfs/cvmfs_config#L524

      Most of the other checks use the runascvmfsuser function, so it seems this one should too.

      Thanks!
