Are you sure you want to do this? If you echo the results of the above,
you should see that one of the generated parameters is $LFS/, which will
cause find to do every directory in $LFS, I think. This will hit the
libraries in $LFS, which you should not do, and will do the other things
twice. Did I forget something?
