Works well enouph? :) As I was stuck with trying to install wget, I
obviously don't have wget yet.

Works perfectly.

I already installed some other packages like bc, openssh, pam, ...

BLFS-svn... Downloaded it 2 days ago I think, I'm not sure how to check
the exact version...

Now it suddenly works perfectly...  I wouldn't know what could have been
the problem. It got installed succesfully. There was one "problem"
though: I was missing the "dante" package, (optional package). There is
no "dante" package in the profile...

I have my / and /usr partitions mounted read-only. Can that cause any
problems? Of course when needing to make install i mount it readwrite :)
