That reminds me, I do use modules and I don't like the fact that such a
critical tool is statically linked to zlib. But that can be easily fixed
by passing '--disable-zlib' to configure.
I don't know how many people use compressed modules, but I am guessing
very few, if you are compiling LFS with a low disk footprint there are
beter solutions (compile in kernel, cramfs).
So how about adding the option to the LFS book?
