Agreed. However, my experience is that there was at least one more
extension that caused undesirable behavior. I cannot remember which
one it was. I will have to and look for build notes from many, many
months ago.

More importantly though, is that the extensions as is in the current
SVN book are the ones recommended by Moz.

BTW - the extensions line you show above is how the BLFS-6.0 book
was released. The changes to the current syntax is since then.
