Please do so. And you can remove the utf-8 related branches, for the 
following reasons:

The "utf8" branch is no longer buildable since the tarball with RedHat 
patches has been removed from its download location.

The "utf8-newmake" branch was never in good shape, and it's easier for 
me to start over (if start at all) after the gcc4 transition finishes.

Also currently I devote more time to practicing in writing kernel 
drivers (a framebuffer driver for my old S3 Trio 3D/2X is almost ready). 
This means -mm kernel, frequent reboots => no possibility to build LFS 
in parallel.
