Henry,
You are a dirty Top Poster :-)  Please use our netiquet when
contributing on the LFS list.  See FAQ.  Gmail can be so configured.

How about:

  Required Patch (Yes, really, whatever damn version of gcc you have!)

Although it is strictly not true if you have an antediluvian gcc (pre
3.4), but the number of those will be almost nil in LFS circles,
particularly amongst new users, who are the ones that can't work it out
for themselves.

Bending over backwards for the backward isn't a good use of
editor-resources.

R.
