I have some thoughts I would like to share, all related to new features.
The so called "new hosts", let's say Fedora Core 6 (now old, there's
Fedora 7 coming), OpenSUSE 10.2 (now there's 10.3 alpha 3) and others
all use the new GNU HASH style definition (anyway it can use even the
old definition by passing "hash-style=sysv").
I've built myself several LFSs using this feature and had ran into no
troubles, still the answer is always the same when people have troubles
with "ld" (because of unsupported feature): use older host etc...
My idea is wouldn't be the time, now, to incorporate this feature
(linking times reduced by 50% as example) and let it become the "new"
standard way of building LFS systems?
Anyway it's not an additional feature but a bare system feature.
I mean that steps towards feature can and, imho, must be done because of
innovations (like newer file-systems).
