LFS chapter 5 adjusting the tool chain

I'm having a problem in chapter 5 "adjusting the toolchain",
The LFS I'm using is 5.1.1(stable) and my host is Slackware 10.
When amending the GCC specs file with,

SPECFILE=/tools/lib/gcc-lib/*/*/specs &&
sed -e 's@ /lib/ /tools/lib/' \
$SPECFILE > tempspecfile &&
mv -f tempspecfile $SPECFILE &&
The output is,
bash tempspecfile: permission denied

I have cut and pasted it and typed it in and the output is the same in either case,also I have traced my steps up to that point several times.

Is something from the host finding it's way in?....if so how can I correct this.

Have you got write permissions to the directory you are doing this in? (should be owned by LFS user)
