The following is a cheap/inexpensive hack, and not a sanctioned
method, that "should" work with lfs/hlfs and/or blfs. It "may" work
with clfs if you stay with the same architecture as the host. (enough
caveats to cover my buttocks I think)
Start with an empty sources dir and execute the following
mount --bind $SOURCE $BUILDDIR/sources
(Remember, this connection is not persistent between boots and if you
delete any files they are removed from your SOURCE directory.)
I will see what can be done to accommodate your request within the
various jhalfs branches.
