I don't consider cron part of a basic system. My idea of a basic system
is having utilities available with which you can maintain a system and
develop other software (LFS's viewpoint of a basic system is different
than say RedHat's viewpoint of a basic system. RedHat won't have
compilers and such in their basic system but in LFS they are part of it
else you can't do much else witht the system).

Cron isn't something needed to build other software with so it's not
