Thanks, I am aware of the lfs-dev mailing list, and was subscribed at
one time. I cancelled that subscription once my last LFS system was
complete to reduce some of my incoming email volume. I'm now going to
reactivate that subscription and place it in digest mode I suppose.

Anyway, thanks for the info. To play it safe, I'll go ahead and start
over. Glad I noticed this before I got much farther than I did.
