The only thing on it that still seems up in the air is readline.

1) The BLFS build of it is not broken,
2) bash doesn't need it,
3) very few need history in debugfs
4) most will install a *good* ftp client in BLFS.

And for those who want to argue (especially the last 2 points), then
I'll restate, again, that a link to readline is quite apropos, just like
for filesystems and editors. The links serves all points of everyone's
argument, so why fight against it so vehemently?
