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
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
