FYI in the bash doc directory, under examples/functions there's a which 
function which is a good replacement for the package. I'll leave it up to you 
guys to decide if you want to mention it either in LFS (under bash) or BLFS 
(under the which package). It would be nice to mention it at least somewhere, 
since this thread is so long yet nobody seemed to be aware that it's allready 
(semi) provided with bash.
