That doesn't make a lot of sense. LVM/no LVM and ext4 or XFS or ZFS
shouldn't make any difference to the compiler.

I could see problems happening if they set SELinux to "enforcing" and
put together a fine-grained and bloody-minded set of policies. In that
case, a compiler-generated executable might not have the right security
context to read its config file or its data files. Heck, "make install"
would probably fail on a system like that even if you ran it as root and
left PREFIX as /usr/local .
