chapter 5 coreutils: remove make check-root

The instructions in CVS 20030513 chapter 5 coreutils currently say:

./configure --prefix=/stage1
make check-root      # <----
make install

Since we're running as non-root user "lfs" in chapter 5, that won't 
work.  Better change that to

RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS=yes make check

and then a note to su root and then run

make check-root

Or maybe just delete it.
