	OK, ya got me there. :)  I missed that.  However, glibc-linuxthreads needs to 
be mentioned in the section on obtaining all packages.  If I had already had 
it, I probably would have keyed in on the paragraph that BRIEFLY mentions 
unpacking glibc-linuxthreads into the glibc directory before trying to build 
glibc. ;)

	Maybe that paragraph should be set out from the rest more, so it is 
highlighted - anything to make it more likely to be seen since it is such an 
important thing. :D  Just a thought to maybe make it easier on those who come 
after me to get a good LFS built. :D

	And, don't forget to mention getting glibc-linuxthreads in the obtaining all 
packages step also. :D

	Am I having too much fun yet? :)

	I'm planning to eventually use an LFS based setup to do deveopment for a 
robotics project I want to start on soon. :D  Maybe do my own embedded thing 
with an LFS based setup.

	I love this quote, BTW!  I copied it to a file of favorite quotes. :D
