Suggestion for CVS re GID's

Hey guys -

This one came up on LFS-Support earlier, and I thought that maybe it's
something we should address here.

The current CVS instructions create the user "lfs", without specifying a
group for that user.  This causes useradd to default to gid "100". 
However, if no group is specified for GID 100, the glibc make check in
chapter 5 WILL bail, every time.

We should probably have a "groupadd -g 100 users" set up there, and warn
the user that this may error, if the distro has already set up a gid

Just a suggestion.
