If you want propolice on glibc, you need propolice in chapter 5. There might 
be reasons to adjust the build proccess too. We shouldn't be worried about 
saving people's time. If they want a quick install, get a binary distro. I'm 
not saying we should build glibc 6 times, but it might make sence to do make 
bootstrap in gcc pass one and two, where pass two has the propolice patch. 
Propolice in gcc will produce different results, which LFS's build proccess 
doesn't account for.
