LFS5.0-Chpt 6-Coreutils check failed

I received an error in the checking of coreutils installation in chpt 6.  
I included the console output starting from "make install-root" in case 
it is useful.  The <su dummy -c "make RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS=yes check">, 
command, where the error occured, is at the bottom.  I have no idea 
what the error is telling me.  Thanks ahead for any help.

**************************************
This test requires a writable directory on a different
disk partition, and I couldn't find one.  I tried these:
   /tmp /var/tmp /usr/tmp /root
Set your environment variable CANDIDATE_TMP_DIRS to make
this test use a different list.
