SVN-20070706: Step 5.7 Adjusting the Toolchain

I don't understand.  I'm aware of CLFS (and even for the PowerPC).   
This is assuming I want to build a system on a platform other than  
its destined platform.  I'm actually building it on a PowerPC box  
running LFS-6.2. That's not the point.

The reason I mentioned that I was doing this on PowerPC was to put  
all the variables on the table.  I'm not sure if this is unique to  
PowerPC. I suspect that it's actually unique to gcc-4.1.  The point  
is, if you do a "gcc -dumpspecs", the linker information is no longer  
at the beginning of the line.  It's in the middle.

The problem is that step 5.7 is about making sure that your linking  
against the /tools/lib/ linker, not the /lib linker. Because the sed  
statement specifies the substitution only if the text matches at the  
beginning of the line, the linker is not substituted. I discovered  
this because I followed the steps, ran the gcc test, and discovered  
that I was still linking to the /lib linker.

Has anyone running this on x86 come across this?  Is there anyone  
with a gcc 4.1 install that can verify whether the linkers mentioned  
in the dumpspecs file still only show up at the beginning of the  
line?  They don't for me.
