Sh-utils problem with mv

In chapter 6 of version intel-2.4.3 I run the commands:
./configure --prefix=$LFS/usr --disable-nls &&
make LDFLAGS=-static &&
make install &&
cd $LFS/usr/bin &&
mv date echo false pwd stty $LFS/bin &&
mv su true uname hostname $LFS/bin
HOWEVER, when the second mv is executed, su is not in the current path to
move...it's in $LFS/src/sh-utils-2.0/src/. This caused me a bit of
confusion and to remove, replace, and recompile the sh-utils package about
5 times now.
I went ahead and copied this one by hand. Everything else got moved into
the right place I think.
Is this a problem with LFS or with the makefile install?
Also, are there any problems with my creating LFS as a normal user and not
root? Nothing was mentioned in the introduction about needing to be root.
I have a feeling I'm going to need to chown the entire installation in a
couple chapters, but I can deal with that.
I've already needed to be root to create the partition and to install gcc
on my normal system. Anything else I need to know?
