Yes, but you are referring to the static portion.  What I am suggesting is
*skipping* this alltogether becuase a current LFS4.0 CD host is everything
found in CH5 (and more).

Again, I beleive you mis interpret the question.  My apologies for lack of
clarity.  Yes, ch5 is a development base (as should be an LFS CD)

I disagree that the ch5 environment has any effect on correct paths to
binaries for ch6 builds.  Ch6 is built from a new source tree with completely
different c&m&mi commands that indicate the new ch6 FHS filestructure.

am I wrong here?
