Greetings,

I'm interested in LFS (or don't feeling at home in distros) and
preparing for my first build, with guidance from LFS book 5.0.

My question is about building some packages twice.  I haven't
quite understood why one has to build for example binutils and
gcc again in chapter 6, when they are allready build in chapter 5,
pass II. Why can't one use those?

Thanks,

Santtu
