If you are starting from the beginning of Chapter 6, you should be OK. I
haven't tried what you suggest, but the purpose of Chapter 5 is to create an
isolated, known environment. The important thing is to know that you should not
replace the Linux headers *after* glibc is built. In this case, you haven't
built your final glibc yet.

Not after it is built.
