The only disadvantage is that it *might* not build. There have been
several problems reported which I've not got around to fixing yet.
There's only two which directly affect the build:
1. glibc fails some tests when run on recent kernels (2.6.11), so
running the testsuite needs to be done via:
'make -k check'
2. e2fsprogs needs a sed performing before you run ./configure:
sed -i.bak 's/-DTEST/$(ALL_CFLAGS) &/' lib/e2p/Makefile.in
Hopefully I'll get some time tonight to fix these, and the other minor
