It actually doesn't matter at all on which partition you compile
packages on. As long as the 'make install' command contains the proper
values to the LFS partition (in case of Glibc it means compile wherever
you want to compile it, just make sure you pass install_root=$LFS to
'make install' (so make install_root=$LFS install or make install
install_root=$LFS' (the order doesn't matter)
