   No, I have not run testbuilds against CLFS-1.0 since the change. I 
had been working on CLFS-Embedded lately. The Perl timing issue will not 
affect CLFS-sysroot or CLFS-Embedded.

   A cheaper workaround for Sacarde would be to disable SBU calculations.

   Both chroot and boot isolate the final build from the host. Either we 
go back to the bash version or we skip timing of the temporary Perl 
package. (I dislike coding exceptions.) A third option is to revisit the 
timing method.. write a neutral data package (ticks/milliseconds or what 
ever) at the end of the log and do all the processing at the end of the
