lfs at 1[binutils-build]$ make install
/bin/sh ../binutils-2.15.91.0.2/mkinstalldirs /tools /tools
mkdir -p -- /tools /tools
mkdir: cannot create directory `/tools': Permission denied
mkdir: cannot create directory `/tools': Permission denied
make: *** [installdirs] Error 1










the section 4.3

shows tools as

$LFS/tools

section 5.4.1

shows tools as /tools in the prefix

which /tools was not made prior and lfs user doesn't have permission to 
make files in the host root directory.

What's up?  Error in the book?  Did I miss something?
