user lfs: need to be in root to compile


I've set up user lfs as suggested in the book, and all permissions seem to be in order, with echo $LFS working, lincs to /tools, etc all working. Still, I get errors regarding dependency permissions if I compile some of the packages without going into root. It's probably not a big deal, but thought I might be missing something .

example making glib from lfs user:

Code:
Insecure dependency in open while running setuid at gen-libm-test.pl line 429.
make[2]: *** [/mnt/hda4/lfs/glibc-build/math/libm-test.stmp] Error 25
make[2]: Leaving directory `/mnt/hda4/lfs/glibc-2.8-20080929/math'
make[1]: *** [math/subdir_lib] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/hda4/lfs/glibc-2.8-20080929'
make: *** [all] Error 2

When you ls -l on the /mnt/lfs directory does it comeback as something like this?

drwxr-xr-x 11 lfs root 4096 Mar 21 14:34 tools
drwxr-xr-x 11 lfs root 4096 Mar 21 14:34 sources

No, all permissions seem to be set correctly to lfs:lfs. For modules like
Coreutils I couldn't even compile in puppy linux, but was able to compile from Tiny-Core linux while in root. Then I had to chown the /tools/bin directory back to lfs:lfs, since it became root:root. All environment variables seem to be set correctly for user lfs, and I use 'su - lfs' (non-login). Path's are set correctly in .bashrc
(/tools/bin first).

edit: One thing I found, links in /tools need to be deferenced (chown -h) to change permission to lfs:lfs from root:root. I don't know if this was presenting a problem.
