FWIW, I have always got the message disavowing bash, but I just
ignore it, and the chroot environment works just fine. I have
installed LFS3-pre4 and a whole bunch of apps, including X, in
the chroot environment with no problem. I have wondered about the
message about bash, thinking some of you wizards would explain it
for me.

Still waiting, ;)
