Adding Static Findutils

   If a static version of findutils is added before the chroot when
building LFS, "find" can be used to log package installations in the
chroot environment.

./configure --prefix=/usr
mmake LDFAGS=-static
make --prefix=$LFS/usr install does the trick

I have been trying to use Installwatch but it doesn't work in the chroot
environment, as a number of other people have noted, but a static
"find" based on a time stamp will work as soon as you chroot.
