Not essential but I want to make gcc-2 the "official" LFS kernel compiler as 
it were so those instrutions need to be in the LFS book too, now. It'd be 
wrong to say "If you want to follow our recommendation and use gcc-2.95.3 to 
compile the kernel, go download the BLFS book and read the gcc-2 
instructions". It's better served having it right in the LFS book.

That I agree with. Maybe we can come to some agreement on that one, just have 
the "moving libs around" in the BLFS book but the actual software installatio 
in the LFS book. But even that seems odd to me.
