Sigh.  We've been doing this for over 10 years and have over 21000
registered LFS users that have successfully built LFS.  Why do new users 
want to do something different from the instructions and ask why their 
build doesn't work?

There is one way that definitely works.  There are probably more. 
However there are far more ways it doesn't work.
