Description

If I untar lighttpd-1.4.21.tar.gz as root, I notice that the top level directory has world write permission on it by default.

This I think, could allow users on a shared system to corrupt the source before it is installed.

please file a bug on autotools at the gnu website. they do this on purpose for some unknown reason in "make dist".

and building as root is not adviced. build as normal user and run only make install as root.
