No, that just means that the lfs user doesn't have sudo rights, as it 
shouldn't. Just do an "ls -l ../mpfr-*" to check permissions on that 
file. Also, it has absolutely no relation to anything with GCC, GMP, or 
MPC. It just means the mpfr tarball has restrictive permissions. Plus, 
that suggested command is wrong. It should be "chown lfs:lfs
