The last sentence in the paragraph between make and make test.

_To run the test suite, first copy the scp program to /usr/bin, making
sure that you back up any existing copy first._

This is probably enough for some one who has done this before and
knows what to look for and where to look and understands the risk of
why to back up any existing copy. Not complaining, just pointing out
what is probably obvious. :)

With a fresh LFS install with only the minimal BLFS stuff done, like
reading through chapter 1, 2 and doing chapter 3 and openssl in
chapter 4 and the only other things being GPM and WGET installed,
there probably isn't any existing copy of scp.

Once I have run make, where will the scp program be? Would the make
install move it to the replace?

Not complaining just suggesting, It would be nice if there was more
information then just that sentence. :)

Any volunteers willing to help make that sentence a little clearer?
