 With respect, it's grep.  The change to libpcre.so.1 has apparently
broken booting for those who upgrade existing systems without
recompiling grep.  I thought LFS used to have a warning about this,
but all I can see is the comment on --disable-perlregexp in (7.0)
chapter 5.

 The LFS bootscripts use grep in the cleanfs and console scripts,
so runlevel 3 is apparently broken.
