I don't think the hint about using the host config file was in the book
when I started but, in any case, yeah, I have done the same. Yet, even
after building a dozen or so systems I still do not have a warm fuzzy
feeling that I have tied all loose ends.
Some of the help files regarding a fix or whatever merely suggest that
"if you don't know click yes as it won't effect anything" sort of
reasoning. I really dislike this type of solution. It is not elegant.
As Richard stated "...good luck trying to keep it up to date"
Especially, as they are implementing a new configuration system for the
next stable kernel series. Perhaps someone will hack something together
in their 'copious free time' (see jargon file).
