Indeed, I was simply commenting that it leads to excessive build times
with a bootstrap at every compile as we obstensibly doing the work of
the bootstrap over the three phases.  Also I would build glibc with just
the linux headers at every pass which, according to the glibc docs,
removes any dependancy on any pre-existing c library, so chrooting is
