Strictly speaking, it is a temp tool as far as LFS is concerned, but it is
also a useful package to have around and I consider it a fairly important
part of a complete toolchain/development environment.
I prefer to have a measure of confidence in a program before installing it,
rather than just blindly installing and hoping I won't discover an issue
further down the chain...
And it's not like I'm doing this just once! I am busy developing a kind-of
customized A,B,C-LFS of my own, so lots of packages being recompiled and
comparison of test-suite results provides useful 'checkpoints'.
