Following the logic in pureLFS, if we have just built a full LFS, we
should be able to start by patching and building gcc, and use that gcc
to build binutils, then glibc. As your patches stand now, will gcc have
to be rebuilt again _after_ glibc is rebuilt (like is done in chapter6),
or are we not patching glibc with propolice anymore. And if we are, will
the patched glibc build gcc differently considering it has it's own
propolice patches? Have I confused anyone, yet? ;)

I'm with you all the way.

I'll hold off thinking about this until I know whether or not glibc is
still being patched. If not, I believe we can start with an extra gcc
(patched) and binutils before glibc then continuing along like chapter6.
