Here's excerpt from my glibc-2.2.1 file that I created while building my 
LFS-2.4.4 system:


While doing an LFS-3.0 build mtrace and pt_chown are missing so I just want 
them added again. Building from chap5 gives those files, so chap6's way has 
to do the same.

Whether pt_chown is needed or not is not up to us (it's not needed when using 
devpts, but not everbody may use that).

As to the reason of msgfmt. Glibc will complain about the missing file and I 
tried building without it. I ended up with less files installed than with 
msgfmt installed, but I didnt keep that list so I simply may have done 
something wrong. I'll check on it again and I'm sure others will too.
