fusermount has its executable sticky bit set, but the program is not world
executable.  This means that a regular user cannot use encfs to mount a personal
encrypted directory.  Only root can mount an ecrypted directory for the user
using "encfs --public ~user/dir-enc ~user/dir"

A regular user should be able to make a personal encrypted directory without
becomming root.

You have to add the user into the "fuse" group. Then he/she can mount trough fuse
