Hm, right. I have never noticed this before as usr/src has always been
created group-writable here, so lfs (having "root" as a supplementary
group, which is probably wrong BTW) didn't have problems creating new
directories in it.

Maybe just create that usr/src as lfs, and at the end change its user
to root? But that's not a lot prettier neither.
