I haven't kept track off it. I don't expect things to have improved,
though. Dirty hacks are long-lived. However, testing this is not
difficult. Strip all symbols from everything then grep the whole /lfs for
/static (make sure you exclude /proc, reading some files there can cause
disk corruption!).

Speaking of this issue. Be sure to include a FAT WARNING that people must
not build chapter 6 packages in parallel. It's tempting to start compiling
the next package before the previous one has finished, but it can lead to
/static paths being hardwired.
