The authors of the buildscripts are the same as those of the plfs hint.

Tell Ryan and Greg, not me.

Who decides "where it should be"? Fact is that the buildscripts are 
much more up-to-date (especially concerning ppc builds) than the hint.

Same to you. The hint clearly states that "at this point in time the 
scripts are a bit further advanced than this document and do not match 
it exactly." All I wanted to tell you is that Ryan is aware of the 
changes needed for ppc builds (because I submitted patches to him), and 
that they will probably be merged into the hint sooner or later.
