Question on 6.60 (Stripping Again)

Wow, I can't believe I've made it this far without disaster!

Just a question here: The book (6.4-rc1) warns to ensure that none of
the programs to be stripped are running, and suggests re-chrooting "if
unsure whether chroot was properly entered". However, I recall that in
the bash chapter we were specifically told to fire up the newly-minted
bash, so it is running! Shouldn't this say to absolutely re-chroot?
Anyway, that's what I did.

Second question: Now that I am almost there, was it stupid of a newbie
to do this with an rc? What perils lurk for me and will I be doing
this whole thing over again soon?
