I'm using Xubuntu 12.04, with ext4 file system.
And you're right, it doesn't happen when I build in my home directory. I'm not sure what that means, everything under /opt is owned by me. 
Thanks
Joe

Funky. Could you please provide some more details about your build setup
(Linux distribution, file system, ..)?

Does it work if you build it in your homedir instead?
