Uhm what exactly are we talking about here?
The files in $LFS/usr/include/linux and $LFS/usr/include/asm are owned by root
when you use those "cp -R" commands.
Or are we talking about the /usr/src/linux-2.4.19/ directory's contents?
Either way I think the security measures are going a little bit overboard.
If you're paranoid about this happening maybe you should just disconnect from
the network or don't allow people to login while you're LFS'ing.
