 Hi. Very minor issue...

 When running the coreutils test as 'nobody' in 6.23.1 it fails to start:

 su-tools: /bin/bash: Permission denied

 I had to chmod -R o+X $LFS/tools

 The directions given in "5.35. Changing Ownership" tell you to chmod
 /tools to root:root

 I can't readily find where the create mask is specified for the host root
 user when making the tools directory, or find any chmod of the tools
 directory. Maybe you should add an explicit chmod in 5.35, or mention
 chmod in 6.23.1
