Yes, that is the recommended upgrade procedure. Please note that you 
don't _have_ to. For example, I upgraded gcc-3.2 to gcc-3.2.1 on my 
running system without instabilities _untill now_. You can upgrade to 
minor revisions safely. Just be sure to scan lfs-dev so you'll be aware 
of any consequences for upgrading these packages since these are 
reported there first.
