Last paragraph in Chapter 2 (About $LFS) of LFS-CVS

It's saying:

"One way to make sure that $LFS is set at all times is adding it to the 
/root/.bash_profile and /root/.bashrc files so that every time you login as 
user root, or you su to user root, the LFS variable is set."

But now we compile and install software as unprivilegied user, and information 
about $LFS setting is explained later in Chapter 5 (Install all software as 
an unprivileged user), so there's no need of this little paragraph.
