Discussion is always welcome. :)

Maybe I am missing the obvious here...I don't see why that would throw
an error. The LiveCD uses /lfs-sources for the sources dir, is that the
problem? It is normally a good idea for the user to copy the sources to
/mnt/lfs/sources or whereever he wants them, because in chroot the
symlink won't work anymore...I believe.

I thought the book said to build in $LFS/sources but I could be wrong.
Will need to double check, but maybe the book itself needs to be tweaked
The /usr/local/src doesn't matter to me. As long as the user can find
them. We will see what the rest of the LiveCD devs think.
