Hello,

the patch named binutils-2.16.1-posix-1.patch is currently used in 
cross-LFS, but not in the regular LFS. It fixes some calls to "head" and 
"tail", for POSIX compliance. It has nothing to do with 
cross-compilation techniques and thus has to be present either in both 
cross and non-cross books, or in none.

The question is whether "both" or "none" is the correct answer. AFAIK 
there are no hosts in the real world that don't understand "tail -1", 
and the new version of coreutils says that disallowing this syntax was a 
mistake.
