Thanks Alexander,
I was just getting ready to send a reply that I'd fixed it with almost 
the same thing.
I used
chmod a+rwxt blfs-packages
and it worked.
After looking at your post I was uncertain if the sticky bit should 
remain or not; so after looking for the umpteenth time at the man page I 
removed it as it seems to restrict permissions further than needed on 
the directory.
Again, thanks.
