Profile Syntax

The copy tag :

I think, we must add some attribute to use the -a or -R ( <param>-R</param> ) 
or if it is hard coded and don't use the cp of the system, we must think to a way to add some options.

ex :

	<archive />   # keeping date, owner, or <date />, <owner>root:tty</owner> 
	<link /> or <no_link /> # to copy the link or the target of the link



It's necessary for installing the header kernel.
I think it's better to use at minimal the <command_system> tag, right ? But do we have to implement all the option of cp in the tag, or only the one that we use in the LFS book. (not a good idea because there will be many other profile)

Certainly the profile syntax can't be stopped, and there will be numerous version, what is the number of the actual profile ? 0.0.1 ?


add a check_installed_file tag to use in 

and the same in <post_install> </post_install>

Because everybody here use a little script to know what file are installed,


change the make_install tag to support a command like :
<make   param1="-e"
		dir="&buildDir;/&binutils-dir;" />
instead of using <make>

or remove the <make_install> tag and use only <make> tag with <param>install-info</param>
I prefer the second way because behind <make> and <make_install> there is only one programme : make with different target
