Here we go _again_

Hopefully this time it'll actually work out allright.

4 oustanding bugs I want to have fixed so I'll be working on them: bugs 416, 
417, 420 and 423 (you can check bugzilla yourself to see what they are 

They are all minor ones so it shouldn't take more than a few minutes each to 
get them done. I'll start on it in a minute but I won't finish it tonight 
unless a miracle happens.

As soon as the 4 bugs are fixed I'll release LFS-4.0-RC1, put it up on the 
website as a version listing, and so on. I'm in need to redo my personal 
system so I'll be using that RC1 to do a full build of my workstation. You 
can be assured I'll do a thorough job at looking at the installation (I'm 
very picky and anal when it comes down to my production systems). I estimate 
about a week to get RC1 tested. I don't think we need more than a  week 
because we've been testing for a very long time as it is. These 4 fixes that 
I'll be making are very minor, except that fix to GCC to stop running the 
fixincludes on the host distribution's files. It may have some unexpected 
side effects.
