I want to confine chapter 5 to $LFS/stage1/ only, to keep it seperatated from 
the actual LFS installation.

If you were to put $LFS/stage1/ onto another system, you should be able to 
install a full LFS by just going through chapter 6. If you have to keep track 
of stuff done in chapter 5 to the regular LFS filesystem ($LFS/usr for 
example) the separation becomes much less clear and tidy.

I rather run the few extra commands and keep the separation.
