In chapter 5 the section on Setting up the environment contains
The LFS variable has been explained in previous chapters.
LC_ALL is a variable used for internationalization.
The LC_ALL variable controls the localization [...]
The second sentence is unneeded and mistaken.
The first sentence is better replaced by "The LFS variable should
of course be set to the mount point you chose.", as the reader who
doesn't remember what the LFS variable is about is not helped at all
by the current unspecific reference.
In the section on Bash <filename> tags are missing around
"$LFS/static" and "/static" and "bash". The words "is being phased
out and" can be dropped.
In the explanation of the Diffutils configure options, "configure" is
once wrapped in <filename> and another time in <userinput>.
In the Gawk Dependencies the "Last checked against..." is better
dropped, as it isn't checked yet.
In the explanation of the GCC make options "compiler compiled"
should read "compiler was compiled". In the explanation of the
configure options a closing parenthesis is missing. And the last
cc in the last paragraph needs <userinput> tags.
In the last paragraph of the Make section two <userinput> wrappers
"The sh-utils package" should be "The Sh-utils package". In the
last paragraph three <filename> wrappers around "su" are missing,
and "being suid root" should be "suid root".
In the explanation of the Grep configure option "Grep" should be
"grep" and wrapped in <filename> tags.
In the section on Util-linux the <emphasis> tags around "mount" and
"umount" should be <filename> tags.
And for the true nitpicking: when explaining configure and make
options, the colons that strictly speaking are not user input are
put inside the <userinput> tags.
