I reported it myself. After finishing my own LFS system I found my /tmp 
permissions were changed. I'm not entirely sure if it was an LFS package or 
just something I did wrong when chmod'ing some directories i may inadvertadly 
have chmod'ed $LFS/tmp as well.

I'm keeping an eye out too during my current LFS build.
