March 27th, 2004 [cendres]: Added roadmap from mailing list. Started changing
'how things are going to be done'. Moved chap5 kernel headers to between
binutils and gcc (chap5) for cross compiling conformance (no known side
effects). Upgrade to binutils-126.96.36.199.1.1. Remove ssp-signal patch, it
doesn't do anything usefull. Upgrade to coreutils-5.2.1. Added sspspecs
patch, removed ugly sed command from GCC chap6. Cleaned up some links. Added
Grsec patch in preference to Pax.
New book is here:

These are the major differences in packages between LFS-cvs and HLFS-cvs:
Not to mention the extra patches... I didn't want to add Grsec initially to
prevent complications, but it should work fine now.
Iptables should perhaps be the next package to add. Grsec has iptable specific
options that can be used with it aswell. Pam configuratiion needs a cleanup
