Gentoo: Problems running links with svga

Hi, I have just finished compiling my new gentoo system and i tried emergeing links with svga but it said this comment at the end of the build. "change permission of /usr/bin/links2 to enable suid"

I have no idea what that means!

Can anyone explain it please?

Thanks in advance,

Regards Ben.
