You did nothing wrong. I just installed xulrunner (using the
firefox-19.0 tarball) to DESTDIR and I see the same thing:

root at rmlinux: /home/rml/build/mozilla-release > find destdir ! -user root|wc -l
root at rmlinux: /home/rml/build/mozilla-release > find destdir|wc -l

I will include commands to change ownership to root:root when I
update the book to the 19.0 version.
