Comment (by randy at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Shouldn't this discussion be taking place on -dev? Most of
 the messages to this ticket are not going to -book because of the
 tight control of who may or may not post, so there's really nobody
 seeing this except for a few who happened to read one of the few
 -book messages.

 Something as large as changing the build commands should be
 something that as many people as possible should be commenting

 Additionally, I'm not a big fan of including DESTDIR in the
 build commands. Seems we could explain it, perhaps show an example
 and that would be enough. But doesn't really matter to me from an
 LFS standpoint. What bothers me is that BLFS installation methods
 would be different than LFS.

 Sure, update LFS to use DESTDIR then update BLFS. Problem with
 that is it simply won't happen in BLFS. We can't even get package
 updates or bugs fixed right now due to lack of developer time (the
 occasional once-a-month package update notwithstanding).
