Perhaps going forward you could use "issuing" instead of
"performing" the following commands. Just a pet peeve, I suppose.

Instead of this, could we put the actual commands to use? Would it
be much trouble? I mean, almost every instruction we have in the
book is documented somewhere, we could probably eliminate 95% of
the BLFS instructions by creating generic instructions and pointing
folks either there or the package's docs.

Not a big deal, but I can't think of anywhere else in the book where
we point someone to a generic config and say "Figure out out how to
do what is required by looking at xyz and following that example".
There probably is, but I just can't recall off-hand.
