As for helped rebuildability, I'm not sure yet either. This means cross 
compiling when changing libc's. As far as I can tell so far it should rebuild 
on the strictest grsec kernels.

Getting X to work would be good for getting more testers. If we're able to use 
hlfs on a desktop a lot more people will use it. It doesn't mean its a goal, 
it just means it wouldn't hurt. I for one would really like to get xorg 
working with hlfs so I can develop more effectively.

I like the design of cross compiling by default, whether the host has Uclibc 
native or not.. we won't be able to assume either way. So the preliminary 
toolchain will have to be a cross toolchain.
