-This profile is used to build most of the packages
-of the BLFS book.
-It is expected to be used in the target distribution,
-and does not change itself to a chrooted environment.
-To be able to have absolute paths to some files in the
-BLFS profile, the "runit" command creates a file "files.ent" 
-that contains some entity declarations. You should therefore
-use "sh ./runit.sh" to execute the profile.
-As you could want to vary some configuration files for
-different installation, these configuration files can be stored
-in various directories. One is provided, names "config_standard"
-*** IMPORTANT ***
-Before running the profile, you must create a link name 'config'
-that points to the configuration directory you choose to use.
-The directory config_standard contains the configuration
-files corresponding to the book. You can copy it, modify
-the files and modify the "config" link so that your files
-won't be overwritten when executing the next unpack of the
-profile or cvs update.
