installation of cdrecord needs an user "bin"

after installing LFS 3.0 I've tried to install cdrecord in order to burn a CD 
to install LFS as I've read in the Boot-CD hint.

When I was installing cdrecord, the compilation fails because of the lack of 
an user called "bin".

My question is:

Should I change the Makefile's and make root the owner of the files, or is it 
useful to create the user bin? I mean, is the user and group "bin" used by 
many other packages in order to allow other users but the root to execute 
that programs? 

Thanks in advance,
