Excuse me, buildscripts?  Does it look like i give a flying rat's
ass about buildscripts?  Does it lok like i even said I was using the
buildscripts?  I don't care WHAT is in so and so's buildscripts,
I care about what is in the TEXT.  I don't lfs with buildscripts, I
LFS with instructions, not an "alfs."  So maybe if they're going to
update buildscripts with something, why not just add it to the
damn TEXT file, rather than just thinking everybody uses the
buildscripts.  Last I checked, buildscripts are only for testing AFTER
things have been implemented correctly and completely, and work
when reading the instructions and running the commands by HAND.
So maybe you shouldn't just say it's already implemented somewhere
when it isn't implemented where it should be.  Now go back to
wherever you came, and learn how to read the TEXT, not just relay on
buildscripts, that could have errors in them, or anything else.
