Shortcuts always take less time in the short run but lead to problems on the
long run. By taking this shortcut, yes you do have a working linux system
but is it correct? If you understand the reasons why the LFS 5.0 method is
used you would be able to answer yourself that your system is not correctly
built. People who take shortcuts dont understand the road. Its your distro
so its your rules. I also dont build my systems entirely by the book but I
understand every step and why it was chosen. My build methods follow the
book and my differences are minor. If something goes wrong I can fix it.

Your build method, although workable has problems and was dropped for very
specific reasons. When you realise what those reasons are you will also
realise that LFS 5.0 is not the serious problem here.

My apologies to all for this large and if taken the wrong way flamable post.
Ive had my say and wont say anything more.
