Most of the command sequence can be run without privileges except for the 'make install/distrib-dirs' and mtree. Also, the places where you mentioned using mktemp, you should. However, if you run as root, you could just build in a non-public directory, like /root, to be safe. I just use temp files/dirs because after the build I place the binary patches into my versioned patch distribution system, which automates the distribution of these patches to all the nodes on the network.
