I put all binaries in /bin, saves the hassle of moving things around. I 
also use the attached patch to prevent installation of binaries I don't 
want (groups, hostname, kill, su, uptime) and the corresponding man pages.

    patch -Np1 -i ../coreutils-5.0-remove-unneeded-prgs.patch &&
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --bindir=/bin &&
    make &&
    make install &&
    mv /bin/chroot /usr/sbin/ &&
    ln -sf test /bin/[

PS: Also cross-posting to lfs-dev in case Gerard feels that the patch 
should go into the book.
