Why does it need access to /dev/vcsa* ?  What is FTE ?

If it is likely that other packages which don't run as root will need
access to these devices then perhaps a group should be created and
used, but this remains to be seen I think.

Certainly you should not change the ownership of these devices without
asking permission.
