Hi i just wanna ask if i can, in generally, recompile the packages from the
LFS or the BLFS books without having to delete something or doing other
thinks to prepare the recompiling ?
Or, to make the question a little bit better, does the recompiling totaly
overwrite the settings and files wich were created during the first
compiling ?
I ask because there are many packages especialy in the BLFS wich have X as
optional dependencies, like emacs or SDL but i didn't want to install X yet,
but if i later install X i want to use there special features, so i have to
recompile them
