Yep, that got it, question is now, why in the book is it commented out by
default? I could see it if there was a comment to say uncomment this line
after you modify your -march= section (in case someone is running say i486)
but by default, especially for someone who is learning, anyway, thats my
rant on the topic.

I love LFS, I get to learn more each time I play with it. Awesome job guys
with the books, keep up the great job.
