I think I may have found and answered my question.
_if_ anyone has anything to add, or has experience using LFS in
linux. I would _love_ to hear about it :)
FYI, these websites have the answers :/
So, from what I can see, it sounds like when kernel 2.4 is released
(i think they're still doing a manual recount :) that LFS on x86
platforms will be supported. However, programs need to be
compiled with the correct glibc *and* with LFS API calls.
In the mean time, maybe I just need to get an Alpha, or there's
Sparc, or wait for IA-64? :)
