           Summary: why rm + cp libbz2.a during chapter 06-bzip2
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
 Status Whiteboard:
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: gerard at linuxfromscratch.org

I'm wondering about:

rm /usr/lib/libbz2.a &&
cp libbz2.a /usr/lib &&

a 'cp' would overwrite the existing file so why do we 'rm' it?
