The problem is only with non-LFS hosts that define 
NONINTERACTIVE_LOGIN_SHELLS. Since the "lfs" user never logs in using an 
interactive shell, his .bash_profile is never used on "normal" hosts and 
(as already mentioned) only causes damage on "strange" hosts. So I 
propose to add role="nodump" to the creation of .bash_profile in the book.
