That's probably the most polite version of "pay attention at the back of the
class" I've seen :-) That's the same link as in your original email, which
it's pretty clear I paid no attention to on my initial reading.

In which case, I'd say just bump the GCC version requirement. Are there
really any distributions out there that supply a kernel compiled with gcc >=
3.0 but have gcc-2.95.3 as the default compiler? I suspect there's not many
and if there are they're not common anymore. I note that Greg pointed out
that the last release of Debian that contained GCC-2.95.3 was only superceded
18 months ago. I'm not sure that we should be catering to distros with such
glacially slow release schedules :-) Seriously though, as long as the host
requirements aren't too onerous and LFS continues to build on a variety of
distributions, I'll be happy enough.
