Not sure, but because these permission issues were first reported
by me, and now some seem to be fixed upstream using my *exact* same
installation (coinciding with the book's instructions) methods, I'd
lean to this is simply something changed upstream.

You could probably browse through the logs/makefiles and see exactly
what is going on, but I'd bet a Coke that you can rely on my log
files as being something that happens to all installations.
