Incorrect permissions for Android's root/system after building from sources

After building Android from sources I get directory structure in out/target/product/...

which contains root/system and other dirs. But when I check permission for dirs/files I see

that all of them are set to local user. As a result (as far as I understand) running it either

using NFS or copying to SD card leads to the situation when Android doesn't boot completely

as well as it doesn't allow to connect to the board via adb. Also it complains about permissions.

What I see on the screen attached to the board is A N D R O I D text printed to console by /init (and

no animation etc).

Steps I do for building Android:

0. apply FSL patches

1. source build/

2. lunch (select platform)

3. make -j8 2>&1 | tee build.log

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
