Find isn't absolutly necessary either. Neither is m4, bison, flex, etc

LFS's sense of a basic system is a full development system. Whether to
add cron or not I don't know yet. If you look kernel automounters, you'd
need cron so it will unmount and unload modules regularly. I haven't
made up my mind about it yet.
