Do you mean adding as tacking packages on to chap5 or as modifying
chap5? Will it really matter if we double build glibc in chap5 or chap6?
If not, I say leave it for the sake of keeping the LFS chap5 intact
(though likely to be adding packages to it later).

Perhaps I need a tentative rundown on what must happen to the toolchain
to add et_dyn, including any double building, if necessary. I hate to
see us having to start all over from scratch, but if that's the only
logical way, we can still insist that the build is only tested on
vanilla LFS-<whatever version>. Though if we can just modify, that would
IMO be rather useful.
