Comment (by dbn.lists at gmail.com):

 For some reason, I haven't been getting email updates on the bug.

 Anyway, this libtool/autoconf/automake thing has me at a loss.  If we move
 up libtool, then grep has to go with it.  sed is already in the first
 block.  So, that order would look something like this:

 ...
 coreutils
 grep
 iana-etc
 m4
 ncurses
 procps
 sed
 libtool
 perl
 ...

 Or, we could leave grep where it is and add /bin/grep -> /tools/bin/grep
 to the Essential Symlinks.

 I say we ignore automake in autoconf testsuite.  They're circular, so
 either one has to be in /tools to get full coverage, or we just pick one
 that goes first.  No one is going to put autoconf in /tools since it
 already fights such a bitter battle to stay in LFS at all.  So, I say we
 keep the order alphabetical with the unfortunate effect that autoconf
 loses some test suite coverage.
