 Started a few minutes ago.  Unfortunately, gnutls is near the end
of those desktop  builds on which I use it (gnome, or normal+xfce),
so it is going to take some time.  At least I've got through gcc
pass 1 with make -j4.

 This makes me understand why debian stable updates take so long :
test everything, get ready, get hit by a new vulnerability, rebuild
everything.  At least the BLFS book, and my own builds using gnutls,
don't have so many packages as debian.

BTW I haven't seen a release announcemnt yet, so I'll take this
opportunity to thank you for all the work you've put into 7.5.
