I have and that's why configparms is in the book. The Glibc FAQ says you 
don't have to do so on Linux. True. But the FAQ and the actual outcome of 
'make install' contradict eachother. Call it a bug in the make install phase 
if you will. Or perhaps because install_root=$LFS is being used it cancels 
out that "if prefix is set to /usr than slibdir and sysconfdir will be set to 
/lib and /etc respectively"
