Congrats on making it through chapter 6!
The permissions you have are the same as what I have except for
I've got -rwsr-xr-x for passwd.
I'm not sure that these commands need to be group writable -- although
that might help in BLFS when Shadow gets rebuilt after PAM is
installed. Still, I plan on changing the ownship and permissions back
to shadow:shadow before that I get to that point in BLFS.
Why were you thinking of making them group-writable?
