  John, welcome to the bleeding edge!  I recommend you make sure you can 
create at least two rootfses on your disk(s) [ three is probably better, 
to give you freedom for excursions into different build-methods ]. Make 
them big enough for whatever you plan to install, even if you think it 
will be in /usr/local or /opt.

  So far, I know that Ryan intends to get into variations on the lib 
structure when he has time, and I'm *hoping* to try lib with lib32 after 
I've got a working multilib (lib, lib64) build [ I'm stuck with 
unsatisfactory 32-bit glibc test results at the moment, wondering what 
I'm doing wrong ].

  Jim has suggested I look at his patches for pure-64 mips, I guess 
that's MULTILIB_DIRNAMES and friends in the gcc-4.0.2-mips_pure64-1 
patch.  If you don't hack at least gcc, it will default to lib and 

  I hope your requirements for the applications won't prevent you using 
the recent versions we're using in Cross-LFS.  Don't forget to monitor 
the lfs-dev list if you use Cross-LFS.  And however you do it, enjoy the
