           Summary: relative->absolute symbolic links
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: 5.1.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P5
         Component: Book

I'd prefer to see all symbolic linkings in LFS 5.1.1 to be absolute instead of
relative (it would be more intuitive, thus easier to understand for beginners).
So here is the summary of all changes I made for my own installation:

chapter 6: gcc-3.3.3
   ln -s /usr/bin/cpp /lib
chapter 6: coreutils-5.2.1
   ln -s /bin/install /usr/bin
chapter 6: zlib-1.2.1
   ln -sf /lib/libz.so.1 /usr/lib/libz.so
chapter 6: ncurses-5.4
   ln -sf /lib/libncurses.so.5 /usr/lib/libncurses.so
chapter 6: bzip2-1.0.2
   ln -s /lib/libbz2.so.1.0 /usr/lib/libbz2.so
chapter 6: shadow-
   ln -sf /lib/libshadow.so.0 /usr/lib/libshadow.so
   ln -sf /lib/libmisc.so.0 /usr/lib/libmisc.so

But if there are good arguments to keep them relative, I would be pleased to get
