I didnt include it, because I only had logs from the point I gave. that
was my whole log. it was grabbed from X-chat with copy-paste, and for
some reason the top went missing (probably because the text was longer
than the window - it REALLY didnt want to scroll properly.)

I DID invite people to post the full log.

Poor you. sorry, but there wasnt anything saying 'Dont ask questions
about things not in LFS-<last released version>'

So? why would it upset you if I knew how to compile a file?

So what? its STILL LFS, even if one or two deviations are made. (note:
LFS = Linux From Scratch - not EVOLFS - exact versions only LFS)

I was told it wasnt strictly by the book. NO ONE said I'd be nailed to
the ceiling for it.
