GCC is supposed to install fixed includes in lib/gcc-lib/*/*/include/
Because that directory appears first in the include search path, fixed
includes are picked up that way without the need to overwrite the headers in
Unless GCC-3.3 changed this and now writes to /usr/include? I'd expect since
we pass --prefix=/stage1 and --with-local-prefix=/stage1 that nothing on the
host gets overwritten.
And, we install chapter 5 as user "lfs". That user has no write acces to
/usr/include, so I see no danger that the host system gets modified.
