Two questions occurred to me out of the blue:

1. Have you guys, just out of curiosity, compared the binaries (kernel,
glibc, gcc, other packages) produced by the book and those produced with
your method?

2. In order to have a really "pure", "pristine" toolchain, one whose
integrity no senior kernel hacker can doubt, shouldn't we be building
the kernel with the gcc version recommended by them (2.95.3 as of
2.4.19, if I'm not mistaken)?
