An age old argument, not quite vim vs emacs, but past precedence is that 
soft $remote_fs ensures /usr is there.   For BLFS, it's always been not 
to start programs in /usr before at least network was started.  gpm is 
an error in the current book, that I introduced IIRC (and just noticed 
the other day when using install_initd to do auto ordering for the first 
time.   $local_fs should still be a requirement, but was lost when I 
trimmed the fat from LFS-bootscripts.  I took the hard dependency out of 


Yeah, there are definitely no guarantees on the deps yet, I just wanted 
to get the scripts in there for people to see.  Lots of work to do on 
the deps yet.  I'll add $local_fs to the network script to define the 
/var (and local /usr) requirement.  Everyone should feel free to drop in 
any scripts that you have handy or change anything in the contrib that 
you see fit.
