Ok, poor choice of words on my part, it was late, I was angry, I had just
found a huge bug in CVS LFS... etc, etc, etc   :-)

There is nothing wrong with the instructions themselves, but they lead to a
somewhat broken build system as evidenced by the myriad problem reports.

I believe BLFS is doing a dis-service to the public by leaving those
instructions on the web.

Apologies re the original poor choice of words.
