Because that's cross-compiling and we do a native build in LFS. CLFS2
is exactly what you're talking about and might be the right way
forward in the future. But we've had a long and successful history on
LFS with the two stage native build (for x86, anyway), so it's not
changing in the forseeable future.

Man, it's been a while since I flexed my brain on system bootstrapping.
