At section 5.2 people are to be aware of the linker. Also, as a PPC  
builder, you know you'll build more packages than what is mentioned  
in the book. It is good practice to manually check the specs file and  
any other patches that affect the linker. This information might be  
targeted to someone who has a great idea of what is going on with the  
specs patches and the toolchain adjustments and they will adjust the  
build accordingly. The setup is correct. The linker may need to be  
changed, though.
