 Interesting, but I was taken aback to see a heading of `Deprecated'
(gcc-2.95.3), I thought it would be for old things, and this causes me
to ask two questions:

(i) In my opinion, this gcc entry refers to chapter 6, not chapter 5 -
would I be able to move it into the chapter 6 section ?

(ii) You've copied in Zack's posting on this, in which he refers to the
attached patch, but of course there is no link to the patch.  Are we any
nearer getting an lfs-patches site ?

Actually, I've got a third question - the last release of the book and
current CVS are very different, and I suspect this is usual.  The
examples relate to CVS, should we have a separate (and hopefully sparse)
section for releases of the book, or will this always be for CVS ?

You'll always find me out to lunch
