Pierre, you weren't wrong.  What you read is correct.  But what I 
learned is that with the <uname> options used, when I tried to compile 
using 'chroot' in Ubuntu, NSS picked up on the 3.8.xxx kernel Ubuntu 
uses.  When I tried to compile in {,B}LFS the error changed to 
"Linux3.10_x86_64 <etc.>" but remained the same. Make would still exit 
with "waiting for unfinished jobs."  And the first culprit was always 
"can't make the file."  That lead me to the permissions angle.  That's 
why this whole thing was confusing.

Maybe someday, I'll have the time and energy to "slog through" the build 
process and try to find out why this happened.  Although I'm happy with 
the outcome, I don't like to build as root.
