It is a bit rushed and I don't feel 100% confident about it (I've admitted to 
this a few times in the past few days already). The just unraveled ncurses 
library mess just proved that. Though most of the commits aren't huge changes 
that would break things. This "superfluous *.so files" was the only big thing 
that was messed up.

But, if I don't release it tonight we'll all have to wait a lot longer. The 
problems we have now aren't that huge I don't think. Maybe sloppy and messy 
but the system wouldn't really break. I rather release it now and get an 
LFS-4.1 out asap after I get my stuff together after the move.

Always. Still a bunch of oustanding bugs in Bugzilla.
