Calm down. I didn't mean to imply this had anything to do with the
problem I have compiling X. Neither that it's a really, really bad
idea. (But I did seem to hit a nerve with you?!) Only that I had
thought the LFS "distro" would be made dependent on the kernel
rather than the other way around, ie., requiring a patched kernel.

Btw., thanks for the suggestion about the include-file, Jeremy, but
the fix for that didn't help, right now I'm hoping I might find some
clues in http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/archive/13/2004/07/4/210313.

And yes, I don't pretend being anything but naive.

But keep up the good work, I embrace the LFS-idea wholeheartedly!
