Hi all,

Wonder if this is the shortest hint ever.

Not sure if this is a hint or somethig that should be added to the LFS book

On somesystems (mine is slackware 8.0), bzcat is missing, instead you can
use bzip2 -dc ....

This is actually written in the bzip2 --help, but unless you look you don't
find it (I only found it there after searching the web)
