The book should install zlib before gcc anyways. Won't cause problems 
for users not compiling gcj. Will be convinient for users who do.

the gcc-3.2-glibc-2.3.1-compat patch worked for me.

"install -m755 /bin/bash /static/bin/bash" should work.

That would mean a static compile of perl. Would be ok, that way the 
glibc-linuxthreads man pages can be installed when installing glibc:)

Anyways, I think MSB's solution is easier to implement.
