Only encountered problem is coreutils test has a failure. I was running
as root, so this surprised me.

Making check in rm
make[2]: Entering directory `/mnt/golfs/usr/src/coreutils-4.5.9/tests/rm'
make  check-TESTS
make[3]: Entering directory `/mnt/golfs/usr/src/coreutils-4.5.9/tests/rm'

I've looked at the test script, but can't test yet (script still
running). Anyway, wanteed to pass on.

Also, a substantial number of test can only run as root and another
substantial can only run non-root. Methinks some refinement of this in the
Pure LFS suite amy be needed.
