Adding software is _not_ an option, IMHO... i could care less what the
back-end's get coded in, but i don't want to see us getting to the point
of installing extra software, if the language doesn't have a way of
using chroot nor can it use a wrapper then it should not be used. (IMHO)

Just to clarify, installing extra software on the host system todo ALFS
i can understand (i hate that still, but for cdrom installations i could
care less) but installing software in your build (on your new LFS
system, inside chroot, etc) i would prefer if we sterred clear at all

Dunno, i didn't think chroot would cause so much trouble... :)
