As it looks, I'm going to do a few things differently from what the hint is
describing. First of all I'm looking at $LFS/static as a purely temporary
thing that we use in the book so I'm not even going to bother with a
seperate $LFS/usr directory. Just one bin directory $LFS/static/bin that
holds everything so we can do away with all the copying moving and removing
of binaries (like we do now with for example bzip2 stuff - moving from
$LFS/usr/bin to $LFS/bin so it'll match whatever we do in chapter 6). The
only 'extra' subdirectory I currently have in $LFS/static is the 'src'
directory where I do all the building just to keep things uncluttered.

Since it's not yet Monday/Tuesday you got a few days to comment on this and
tell me why I shouldn't do this and stick to a $LFS/static/usr directory
and keep on moving things from $LFS/static/usr/bin to $LFS/static/bin
