Have completed chapter 6 just up to "configuring essential
software" but it has cost nerves. Had to repair lots of typos
(found out the hard way;-). With an incredible exactness I placed
most of the typos where they prevented a static linked

the same list of a correct installation, to find out any missing,
misplaced or wrong size files. Is there anything similar in LFS,
which I may not yet have found?
TIA, and sorry if the hint is somewhere and I just haven't found
or remembered it!
