Perhaps the "cp -av"  of man-pages package isn't a great thing to do after 
all ;)

Something I have been contemplating a while:
after lfs-book finished let's run a command like:

chown root.root -R / (when you rebooted and setup networking)

I'll have to check though if there are files not owned by root/group root 
after an install (aside from the man pages, perhaps there are files owned by 
'bin' because it's supposed to be owned by bin, can't tell that off hand).
