Of course!  Thanks of the reminder.  We have that in LFS Section 7.7.
We might want to consider putting that into the Section 6.6. Creating 
Essential Files and Symlinks so it is available early.

We'd probably only need

   echo "set horizontal-scroll-mode off" > /etc/inputrc

and explain that it will be fleshed out in Chapter 7.
