I delete the *.la files from all my packages, well the package manager
than I am using dose so automatically.
So far I have not had any issues with LFS or BLFS, I am building xorg,.
I have ran it (works well using tvm ) but I am cleaning it up as I
didn't like how I packaged it on the first pass.
I intend to build Xfce and KDE4 so I have a little ways to go. I will
most likely end up using Xfce with some of KDE4 apps, that is if KDE4 is
sluggish with LFS/BLFS, under fedora 17 it's a turd on a quad core AMD
with 8G of ram, you can take a nap on booting. :-( I fact I did fall
asleep waiting for it to boot. I boot it and then go to the kitchen for
a snack, if I take long enough it will be ready when I get back. This
same system flies with Win 7.
This LFS/BLFS project is my last attempt with linux... If it doesn't pan
out then I _WILL_ move to PC-BSD.
