My optimization flags are "-O3 -march=pentium2 -mmmx".

I'm afraid the kbd configure isn't very verbose. It doesn't provide a 
config.log and the configure and Makefile are nearly the same (one difference 
about DATADIR, in one case /usr/share/ and on the other /usr/share/kbd).

That drives me to last two questions :
 - do you think an automated lfs can drive me out of the deep ?
 - how can I directly post with knode (news reader) in lfs.support : I receive 
the message "404 posting not allowed" and am obliged to use the mailing list 
with kmail (I precise I've got no problem with other newsgroups) ?

Thanks anyway for your help,
Laurent Hugé.
