           Summary: CPATH environment variable doesn't get cleaned
           Product: ALFS Profiles
           Version: SVN
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: LFS Profiles
        AssignedTo: alfs-log at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: rodolfo at rodsoft.org
         QAContact: alfs-log at linuxfromscratch.org

I had problems while configuring glibc in the first pass of chapter 5 (it was
looking for the kernel headers in the wrong place) and after some while I
discovered that the environment variable CPATH that's defined in my host isn't
being unset. So I'd suggest to add the line

<variable name="CPATH"></variable>

around line 41 of LFS.xml. That solved my problem. 

PS: Why the environment doesn't get cleaned up and just the important variables
get in, as per the LFS book?
