Speaking about a new Blfs release (i know it's not relative to this
thread,sorry ccing to blfs-dev),nobody answered to Archaic comments [1]
,so i bump them again with emphasis to the following two.

1) What base system is being targetted?
a) If 6.1.1, then what about the gcc4-specific stuff?

I know the Blfs folks are not really responsible but the questions still

If the Blfs team will shortly release a new version,then by all that
means,pull it out for a while,because i agree that the (instructions)
are not mature enough for a release.
I just simple wanted it there just for testing purposes.
