Ah, I don't follow this list closely, so I missed that.

Here's some information:

| % uname -a
| Linux turtle #1 SMP Tue Mar 24 07:51:14 CET 2009 x86_64 
| % dpkg --print-architecure
| i386
| % dpkg -l libc6 | grep ^ii
| ii  libc6              2.9-6                     GNU C Library: Shared 
| % echo $SHELL
| /bin/zsh
| % readlink -f /bin/sh
| /bin/dash
| % mount | grep /usr/local
| /dev/sda7 on /usr/local type ext4 (rw,relatime)
| % LANG=C ls -ld /usr/local/src/coreutils-7.1.81-9b653
| drwxr-sr-x 13 sven src 4096 Mar 26 15:54 /usr/local/src/coreutils-7.1.81-9b653

That /usr/local/src is setgid src seems to be the crux.  After removing
the setgid bit with "chmod -R -s /usr/local/src/coreutils-7.1.81-9b653",
"make check-root" succeeds.
