This "must-use-trac" attitude from the LFS project is abhorrent IMHO. Most
open source projects are just happy to receive any feedback whatsoever.
Whatever happened to the good ol days when Gerard or some responsible
person carefully recorded in the BTS issues reported on the mailing list?

The /bin/rm issue is only indirectly related. After the moving of
e2fsprogs, just look at the e2fsprogs testsuite build log and you'll see
why the /bin/rm symlink is needed.
