No it wasn't. First, the only ownership/permissions that need to be 
changed are what the book says to. Second, if it was $LFS/tools it 
simply means you skipped over something else, but your problem had 
nothing to do with $LFS/tools since it was a permissions issue while 
*building* Binutils, before it even needs to look at $LFS/tools. 
Therefore, that problem wasn't really fixed. Besides, if you "need" to 
change permissions on anything else, it's because you have missed 
something in the book. The real solution to the problem with Binutils is 
to follow the book's instructions and start from the source directory 
before typing anything on the page.

And that's another problem in itself. I repeat yet again, read page 5.3. 
Specifically, the binutils-build directory should no longer even exist 
when you start on GCC.
