Booting the temporary system

I thought about this more today. mtab, utmp, and wtmp, are empty (I think they 
stay that way) when we build in chroot, and I've built most of BLFS in chroot 
before and it never seemed to be a problem that those files were empty. So it 
shouldn't be a problem to use /tools/var and /tools/etc, with empty files on 
the real system while building. Everything would be fixed after another 

So, I'll start modifying everything in /tools to use /tools/etc 
and /tools/var.
