Pure LFS Hint - good to go

It's not quite finished yet but there is enough here for anyone to utilise
the new method and build a complete system. There are still some FIXME's in

If this ever gets integrated into the book, it will drastically reduce the
amount of things that can go wrong and thus reduce the level of cluelessness
on the support list. As mentioned earlier, it should also dramatically
increase the range of hosts capable of building LFS from.

I'm still tempted to write a shorter version which doesn't go into as much
detail and doesn't take as much care, but still utilises all the same
principles. This shorter version could go into the book in a snap and would
instantly be a huge win over current LFS.

I'll tidy up some remaining stuff then submit to the hintmaster for
inclusion with the rest of the hints. I still need to write some paragraphs
about installing gcc-2.95.3 into /opt and using it to build kernels.

I'd just like to publically thank Ryan for the amount of work he's put into
this. You really have no idea how hard he's been at it. The final result
might not look like lots of work, but trust me, it's massive.

Anyhow, enjoy.
