Description

tcp_wrappers-7.6-shared-lib-plus-plus.patch

The added install sections of the makefile use the -o and -g qualifiers on the install command. This prevents packagers from building in an unprivileged user account. The qualifiers are unnecessary for root users who perform the installation directly.

Everything mentioned in this report is true. However, it is not applicable to BLFS. The package is expected to be installed by the root user, so having the -g -o switches to install, though not required, doesn't affect the build whatsoever.

If someone needs to vary from the book and install the package as an unprivileged user, they'll need to do whatever is necessary.

Marking the bug as invalid.
