Security is the primary goal.
Actually, the toolchain is the only real difference between LFS and HLFS.
That however, also means everything is very different in the end.
As a security conscious project, there are important things missing.
What about network/Internet security? Netfilter is ready to rock in the kernel,
but HLFS ignores this essential security. Add IPtables and a basic config.
SSH is also essential in most cases. Pam is needed by lots of server apps but
this goes unmentioned forcing a rebuild of shadow, blah blah.
And useradd has never worked right for me so it probably needs attention.
Yes, by all means; if it relates to security I encourage expansion, but the tool
chain is what I really care about. Thanks Robert. You are the best!
