  Heh, I was just about to revisit your earlier posting and ask about 
libtool.  The difference in bison might be worrying, or it might be 
nothing (maybe even another candidate for "differs as they usually do") 
- anything interesting in farce-extras, or is it just impenetrable 
binary data ?

  Also autoupdate - it's a script, so the diff in farce-extras should at 
least be readable ;)

  In passing, it's interesting that every package and its dog hardcode 
the sed path into scripts - that was one of the findutils problems with 
the earlier cross-lfs build order.
