Lot of people keep forgetting that!

I get reports for my hints: "You don't mention how to apply the patch" 
or "You don't OOSRC variable but use it", etc. If after a successful 
compilation of LFS, the user doesn't know how to apply a patch, I guess 
he didn't learn anything! Something similar to the handholding you were
