Built LFS 5.0 on a P-Pro 200MHz w/ 64MB RAM 1.2GB HDD. SBU~1hr but it
works.  It's my Internet gateway system.

Earlier posts to LFS-Chat about someone building on "An 18-ish year-old
Intel i386DX/20 + i387 of 11.5Mb DRAM...Binutils-2.14
Pass 1 took a total of 1 Day, 3 Hours, 47 Minutes and 43 Seconds NOT
including the un-Taring of the package..."
