the idea was to minimize potential damage done to host distro. Running chown
root.root -R $LFS may fail if $LFS isn't set. Or if /mnt/lfs isn't typed
properly, or for some reason somebody types -R / mnt/lfs or something stupid.

Running it inside chroot is the safest way (which again was the whole idea
behind it, don't touch with root until chroot is entered)
