Actually we slightly changed that in the current LFS-3.2 version. Instead
of being root during chapter 5 you create a user called 'lfs' and install
chapter 5 as that user. This way you cannot accidentally overwrite files
from your host distribution if $LFS isn't set properly, or you make a typo
(say you write $LSF by accident)
