Just for the record, I'm running BE-LFS as my workstation.  Lotsa little
niggles that I can't fix yet, but then, I'm not very clever:

1) ALSA only outputs to the rear speakers on my EMU10K1 board - I seem 
to be the only person in the world to experience this - probably not the 
toolchain, this one (probably the brain-chain is off it's spocket)!

2) nVidia's 5336 drivers - compiled here with 3.4 - do NOT give me any 
hardware acceleration from my Riva TNT2 Ultra board.  In fact Glxgears 
runs slower with these drivers than the nv driver in X0rg-6.7.0.  May be 
something to do with the new toolchain, or sysfs.

3) All the problems reported in lfs.hackers, and solved using the 
patches, thanks.
