No, the 'new' way has been tested and it works fine. There were some
programs in the past (in the LFS-1.0 era) that didn't work properly
because $LFS/usr would be hard-coded in it, but those packages have been
fixed over time apparently.

So it should all be ok, but if somebody does find strange behaviour let
me know.
