------------------------------------------+---------------------------------
 As the summary suggests, there's a test failure with Coreutils-8.1 that I
 missed due to our current use of '|| true' in the test suite invocation.
 The thread starting at http://www.mail-archive.com/bug-
 coreutils at gnu.org/msg18565.html discusses what causes this issue, and I
 think it's because of us building as root.  As reported by Gilles
 Espinasse at http://www.mail-archive.com/bug-
 coreutils at gnu.org/msg18590.html this is because we're untarring as root
 which doesn't preserve permissions.  Testing here shows that
 {{{
 chmod 755 src
 }}}
 enables that test to pass again.

 Confirmation from others would be appreciated before I commit this to the
 book though.
