Some amendments for the book:

The mount options "acl,user_xattr", and the kernel config option 
"CONFIG_SECURITY_FILE_CAPABILITIES" are mandatory. Along with acl and security 
labels for the file system of choice. This is the only way to drop suid-root 
from programs.

If new LFS boot scripts are used, then /run needs to be created, and added as 
a tmpfs to /etc/fstab.

Aside from that, things are going well. I have a core2 machine running HLFS, 
and it's running well. I'm anxious to add iptables.
