Why the division? I thought cross-lfs was just a way of building LFS
from arch X to arch Y but in all other respects it would be similar to
LFS. The end result of the two books should not be different (unless
it is absolutely warranted e.g. bootloaders). If I am build LFS and
cross LFS with target architecture of x86, the installation should be

What if gcc-5 is released tomorrow and LFS upgrades to it but BLFS
says - "We are a different project and no one on blfs-dev wants to
upgrade to the new release so BLFS will just stick with gcc-4." The
situation you are mentioning is quite similar.
