That's fine. I use the temp bash all the time to do the final build.
If you trust it to build glibc, you can probably trust it to build
everything. If you wanted to try to switch things midway in a script,
you'd have to pass it the input arguments again. But it's really not
necessary unless you've actually run into a problem where the temp
bash isn't working.
