lfs uses 2.4.2 already

not any alpha such as textutils. gcc has been questionable according to some 
people that i've read here on the list. A full LFS installation with 
gcc-2.95.3 and some other packages like X, QT, KDE, etc will need to be run 
before making the switch. glibc-2.2.2 will need a closer look as well.

yes eventually all new packages will go into CVS as soon as they are tested
