Comment (by dnicholson at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Seems alright to me. The only issue (existed before your commit) is that
 we hack around a lot with the bash testsuite but don't explain it at all.
 I'd like to change

 {{{
 To prepare the tests, ensure that locales are set correctly in our
 environment and that the nobody user can write to the source tree:

 sed -i 's/LANG/LC_ALL/' tests/intl.tests
 chown -Rv nobody ./

 Now, run the tests as the nobody user:

 su-tools nobody -s /bin/bash -c "make tests"
 }}}
