ALFS Build Error (binutils)

Hi all,

I'm having troubles using the ALFS tools,
specifically jhalfs-2.1

I get the following error:

You are going to log into the user account lfs
su requires a password
 Building target 028-binutils-pass1
 [+++++++++++++++++++\/bin/bash: envars: Permission denied    ] 0 min.
19 sec
make: *** [028-binutils-pass1] Error 1
make[1]: *** [mk_LUSER] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/prologic/tmp/lfs/jhalfs'

<jhalfs 2,1> exit

make: *** [all] Error 2

Any ideas why this is happening ? I (prologic) do have
sudo priveleges. Someone on the #lfs-support channel suggested
that perhaps the LFS user required sudo priveleges. I did that
but still no go.

Appreciate any help with this,
