Apples and oranges. In LFS, you are chrooted. No damage to the host
can happen. I know I wouldn't run make created from an unknown (and
untested by me) Makefile without first running it to a DESTDIR.

I can't be the only one that doesn't trust other people's work when
your host system is at stake. Don't construe this is a gig to the
ALFS team, it is simply something I will not do (run make as root
when I'm not certain of the outcome).
