Thanks John. I'll make a quick check of Bugzilla, archives and current
books and if it looks like it's not been addressed, I'll post to
lfs-dev. BTW, you can also do that if you would like. Just be sure you
check things first to avoid a curt reply that it has been addressed

NOTE: I'm on a new ISP, if I'm in your address book ...
