I'm in the middle of building LFS-6.0-testing-20040928 as I write
this. I've not installed Chapter 6 bash yet. I have installed
Chapter 6 readline.

What's the chances these patches will make it into LFS-6.0?

If good, I'll go back and re-install Readline and continue on
with the build.

Please advise on this ASAP.
