more on required packages

Great idea. Here's my plan on the matter...
Prefix my path with /usr/local/temp/bin
symlink /usr/local/temp to $LFS/usr/local/temp
install all the static utilities (except maybe bash) to $LFS/usr/local/temp
This way, during the installation process, I am using the latest version of
the packages WHILE I am building other packages. This is needed because in
some cases, the packages on my system are too old, or don't exist, and so I
need them to be available.
Then, once I am done installing everything, I will blow away the temp
directory, effectively removing everything I don't need. And if I didn't
install gcc, then I no longer HAVE gcc, and so on.
For what it is worth, I would recommend that ALFS do something similar...

No, it's done for you.
Franlky, you can uninstall all Devel packages (except perhaps perl if you
need it and m4 if you run sendmail *shudders*)
Though, don't take my word for it ;)
