The book Version 20030129 is probably worthy of a release; though I
prefer calling it version 5.0 because of the changes to gcc/glibc

I think you should release this ASAP, though I have not tested the
glibc stuff; I am using this version right now with KDE 3.1.

There are interesting changes ahead, like gcc. And these would be better
considered in a 5.1

The gcc fault was a good thing for LFS, but a terrible thing for GNU.
The gcc-3.2.1 will cause trouble for years. We got a bit carried away
with adding new packages; but the strange thing was that the bug was
discovered here, and not by GNU or the distros.
