 I'd prefer to target 6.7 and "as soon as we can".  From what I've
seen on the LFS changelogs, I think the current changes since 6.7
will only have a small impact on BLFS.  I assume 6.8 will have both
a newer gcc and a newer glibc, which might require everything to be
retested again.

 Overall -for the desktop- the gnome versions in the book are working
well with the other things I build.

 A recent make-3.82 issue on -support reminded me that libcanberra
needs to be updated.

 Of course, "as soon as we can" means we need to decide what to do
about kde.
