[Buildroot] chown 0 <file> fails while generating root file system

I am using buildroot-2006-11-01 with my own modifications.
When generating the root file system file (JFFS2/EXT2)
at the end, a file "install.sh" is called in build_arm/sudo-<ver>
which will chown some files to be owned by root.

This fails, since I am running as a normal user
so all files are owned by the user make'ing the buildroot.

I upgraded the operating system to OpenSuse 10.2 and this
generated error messages of type: (translated from Swedish)

chown: changing owner of "<file>": Operation not allowed

Is this a known problem?
I have not seen this error message when using OpenSuse 10.1 
on the same buildroot sources.

If known, has it been fixed in later version?
