I guessed that there was a owner/permissions problem because of the 
tests being run as user 'dummy'.  The /sources dir was still set as 
lfs:users, so I set it to root:root 0777 recursive.  I deleted the 
/sources/coreutils-5.0 dir and unpacked a fresh copy and attempted the 
install from the top again.  This time the 
<su dummy -c "make RUN_EXPENSIVE_TESTS=yes check">
command ran.  However, it still failed one test:

make[2]: Leaving directory `/sources/coreutils-5.0/tests/test'
