Great! This way I get all regular files removed and keep the directory 
structure. :-)

BTW: I did a check - take a look at "/usr/local/bin/". There I found two perl 
programs not mentioned in the LFS book "Short Descriptions".

The two programs are "cpan" and "prove". Maybe one could mention them in the 
LFS book "Short Descriptions" - nevertheless there might be no real need.

Yes. Something for beyond, beyond LFS aka BBLFS. ;-)
