So uhm, since you guys are suggesting using a variable as a solution
how do you plan to modify the gcc patches?  I mean, really, are you
going to except people to sed them just to make them do the proper
effect?  I mean really, do you think that's worthwhile, and not
going to create even more of a hassle to the support list?  I really
do not care what happens to it, for all I care, it could stay /stage1,
why? because you don't have to follow the book, just modify it yourself.
The book should have something concrete, not variable.  And if somebody
doesn't like it, they can modify it themselves, isn't that the beauty
of LFS?  You do what you want, not what joe blow wants.
