I confirm that I have read this message. Sorry for misunderstanding. One 
less reason for me to leave LFS, but there are others.

BTW many thanks to BLFS editors. BLFS is the most trouble-free distro I 
have tried thus far (RedHats, Gentoo, Debian). Yes, I had to rebuild 
freetype in Debian according to BLFS instructions to fix their bug. 
Maybe (please give me a week or two for decision whether Debian is good 
enough for me at home) I will continue working on BLFS.
