I think it should be safe to assume that if the user wants to build LFS
by-the-book using jhalfs (which is what it was designed for) then they
won't mind if we wipe any existing lfs user and make our own with the
defaults used in the book. (Of course we should fore-warn them in the
README about this.)
So what I'm proposing is that we add a switch for resuming a build
already started which will bypass a 'make clean' command. Otherwise the
default -M switch will first run 'make clean' on the build (removing
anything like user lfs, group lfs, /tools symlink, etc.) and then start
the build fresh.
What say the group?
