I packaged with dpkg all the software compiled in LFS.
Doing this i noticed then some packages overvrite some files already
installed by other packages.
This don't create any problem until you are'nt using a package management
system, all the file are man pages or info, but i think is interesting to
know about it.

/usr/info/standards.info
binutils, autoconf

/usr/info/dir
bison, diffutils, findutils, flex, grep, groff, make, glibc
