I like the idea as well, but to get something out the door a bootCD
could be employed. Also, since uclibc can be built by a standard system,
what is to stop us from building it first and using it to link the rest
of the toolchain, then proceeding on as usual. Either way, the pure-lfs
method is starting to show its weaknesses and others are working on that
problem currently.

Ryan, if you are reading this, how goes your work with cross-compiling?
