Adding Static Findutils

All this work to figure out what files are installed?  Seems to me that if
you just install to an isolated "prefix" directory, such as
/usr/local/(package) so that EVERYTHING that gets installed goes to that
directory, you would have a complete list of what files that package
installs, relative to the prefix.  Then, by extrapolation, you know what
files go where.  Sounds pretty simple to me, though I must admit that I
haven't done it yet (but it's on my todo list).

So have I, but it's double work.  What I have done previously is save the
source trees, and
after the system is bootable, rerun make install through installwatch
through a package
managent script I've been playing with, which worked wonderfully but was a
pain.  What I'm
working on now is a script that calls make install or whatever after
creating a time stamp
and then runs find to create the same type log, all from the chroot.

I'll have to try Rod's lfsmake after I get a working 2.4 the old fashioned
