Ian, even if you had a completely proven and valid argument, attacking the

Here is a newbie perspective on this thread, echoing Ian's comments.  LFS is
not, and probably never will be, about the packages.  Its about the
"distro", for lack of a better term.  No one will argue that Gerard does an
excellent job maintaining HIS project to HIS very high standards.  What do
you hope to gain with inflammatory dialogue that focuses on package details?
If the LFS book _works_ as is, then build your system and have a nice day.
If you want to fiddle around with packages that are not in the book, then no
one will try to stop you.  Please do not continue to waste everybody's time,
esp. Gerard's, with harshly opinionated details.  Takes the fun out of it.
