Stupid Question time!

I'm really sorry about this one but I can't figure out why jhalfs stops
at 028-binutils-pass1 with a mkdir: "cannot create directory
'../binutils-build' permission denied" message, in the log file.
I have downloaded the latest (yesterday's SVN) jhalfs-X and am running
it from the 6.2pre4 LiveCD. My $BUILDIR is a clean partition, and no lfs
user or /home/lfs directory are present on the initial system. ./lfs is
being run as root BTW.
This is obviously something quite simple and fundamental but I can't
seem to see the wood for the trees!
A couple of things I couldn't work out were:
* where is $PKGDIR defined? It doesn't appear to be in the main
Makefile, makefile-functions or other obvious locations...
* When is the unpack command actually called? I can't see it referenced
in the lfs-command scripts or in the main Makefile...
Any pointers/clue bats/sarcastic comments taken and duly received ;-)
