I don't understand why they wouldn't have development packages
available on Ubuntu. I'm very certain that there are many developers
that do their development on Ubuntu. And I've personally helped people
on this list using Ubuntu to build LFS. I would think that someone
would need to install the -dev packages to start compiling, just like
on any distro.

Has something changed in this regard? Are people not allowed to
install the glibc -dev package anymore?
