BLFS traceroute current version is 2.0.18and it is installed in
/usr/binwith normal privileges.
But an older version of tracerouteis built in LFS (Inteutils-1.9.1) and
installed in /bin suid.
As a result the newly installed program is not in use (depending on the
> which traceroute -> /bin/traceroute
IIRCthere was a note in older BLFS editions about either placing
traceroute suid in /usr/bin or preventing usage by unprivileged users by
removing the suid bit and moving it in /usr/sbin.
Should not the newprogram replace the previous one or, at least, a note
written to the reader about this ?
