It's a good habit to remove the src and start fresh, the reason being that
patches and seds might be applied which may not be clobbered by simply
untaring again ( coreutils is an example of this )
Personally I create a new dir for each package and create symlinks to the
source and patches
so using binutils as an example
install -d $LFS/build/binutilspass1
ln -s $LFS/source/binutils* .
because I have a binutilspass1 and binutilspass2 I don't need to worry
The symlinks mean I can copy'n'paste from the book without needing to alter
the paths to patches or tarballs
Note, for GCC in chapter05 you also need to symlink the extra packages, not
install -d is a little quicker than
Talented, Witty And Thoughtful .. is how most describe me.
