I agree that the problem you have uncovered is worth pursuing

is understood, then either a prevention in the sense of what
a minimal HSR is can be done, or a prevention in the sense of
a patch to the build can be done.

No, you do not have to build 6.3 at all. You only have to use 6.3.
I'm fairly certain that 6.3 is capable of building 6.6, ahd you
can use 6.3 without building it.

That's what I said above, and you disagreed with me. Now you seme
to agree.

You and LFS have different goals. You want to use your 6.1 build
to create a 6.6 build, and that's not an LFS goal. Since 6.3
works to build 6.6 (I think, anyway), and LFS has provided a 6.3
build to do that with, they've accomplished their goal.

Why do you have this fixation on building 6.3? Nobody but you
has mentioned building 6.3 as a part of the solution.

If your goal is to get 6.6 running on your machine, then there
is a clear path to do that using an available 6.3 build which
can almost surely be made to run on your machine. If you insist
upon using 6.1 to do the build, then I think it is reasonable
to say that you are partially on your own. I don't mean to say
left flopping in the breeze.
