(following 4.1 with versions updated according to Matthew's

as you probably are aware of, bash can be told to link against an
existing libreadline/libhistory. As you might not be aware of,
e2fsprogs-1.33 can utilize readline also:

(debugfs can now use readline)

This means that there are now two lfs packages which can share
readline, and so they should; so I'd like to try installing readline
in Ch. 6, just before bash.

Any experience with this? Will I miss a dependence? More important:
Will it break the build, introducing some /static hardcoding?
