Yeah, that was reported a day or so ago as well. We can definitely work to
sort that one out (on the CD if necessary) but IMHO, I think it's
something that should be changed in all of the nALFS profiles in the ALFS
repo.  LFS and/or
BLFS never use /usr/local (to my knowlegdge) so I don't see why nALFS
profiles should assume a location of /usr/local/bin. Even just using
'nALFS' and letting the shell search the $PATH for it is better.
