I don't think so. This was happening to me on testing and was due to a missing I had to uncomment ldconfig form the startup scripts to prevent 
this from occurring. I'm not sure what the correct fix really is, as I'm not 
sure as to the intended layout of the filesystem.

I'd say it's fine but you can abbreviate a bit by using 'tar cpzf' which will 
incorporate gzip. I think tar will preserve permissions automatically aswell, 
it's only when extracting I believe.
