 "This mess" is a collection of many things that you *might*
want to do on your new system.  Nobody, except perhaps
somebody testing the book, should attempt to do all of it.
For example, some parts (e.g. mailservers) are alternatives.

 The gcc page is only for people who wish to build other
languages than c,c++.  You seem to be using LFS-6.5, so
you *really* need to follow the development version of
BLFS - when I last looked, that had been updated for

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
