/static patches and a 4.0 typo

I notice that some of the /static installs don't require a patch even though
there is a patch available:

Sh-utils (only applies one patch, not the hostname patch)

Is this okay?  I am assuming that this is just the bare minimum needed to
chroot, and the chapter 6 installs will incorporate them.  Just making sure
on the off chance they were overlooked and need to be applied during the
/static installs.

Also, the GCC /static section in Chpt. 5 is mis-worded.  It says that it
"..requires its patch....make sure its unpacked.."

GCC has two patches!

It should read "...requires two patches be applied....make sure they are
both unpacked....".

The install script calls both of them, so they both need to be unpacked.
