Comment (by bdubbs at linuxfromscratch.org):

 If they are as specified, then LFS definitely builds.

 You say in the base that awk -> mawk requires a patch, so the book is
 accurate although there is another work around.

 We can't test every possible variation of shell, awk, and yacc
 substitutes, known now or in the future.

 Would you feel better if the text said something like "a symlink from
 {awk,sh,yacc} to a program other than {gawk,bash,bison} may not work"
