Yo,

I was talking to Gerard this morning about adding the recent security
patch'es (ala ed and glibc) to LFS...at least in the fashion of at least
mentioning it to the user that it is a good idea

Ed - http://www.debian.org/security/2000/20001129
Glibc - http://www.debian.org/security/2000/20000902

After looking at Debian's Security repository it started to make me
wonder at such packages like modutils and make that were listed...

Not just that, but most of the patch'es provided by Distro's are
specific to it, adding all there "extra" features, there doesn't seem to
be a simple patch from the pristine sources for ed, glibc, etc... makes me
wonder the point of general linux security ;)

*mumbles away and wonders if anyone knows what he is asking*
