i was building kafka and i ran into this message:

  You must have a kafka user and kafka group to run this script.
  Something like this should suffice for most systems:
    # groupadd -g 323 kafka
    # useradd -u 323 -g 323 -c "Apache Kafka user" -d /var/lib/kafka
-s /bin/sh kafka

i think we usually state that on the slackbuild page so its easy to
find -- i also installed rabbitmq, couchdb, and zookeeper and those
had it. it might be useful to do the same for kafka.
