Minor build order breakage

Hello All,

On a system based on very recent LFS development (last week or so...) I
see this:

# grep /tools /usr/bin/* -R

This is because e2fsprogs is built before our final sed. (The book even
mentions in the Appendix that sed must be built before e2fsprogs.) IIRC,
we did this so that we could run the testsuite of coreutils. The
breakage seems minor; it's limited to the one file, which is a shell
script. We could fix this by either re-building/installing e2fsprogs
after sed, or adding something like this to the end of the sed

sed -i 's@/tools@/usr@' /usr/bin/mk_cmds

Or are there any other ideas?
