Who's not getting a chance to decide? Isn't the motto "Your distro,
your rules"? All it says in the book is that these are tested
instructions. The same thing applied when we were talking about
filesystems. It says to format your disk as ext2, but that's just a
known working method.

I'm very interested in hearing about your experience with
--hash-style, though. If you compile a binary with gnu HASH, you can't
move it to another machine unless the glibc supports gnu HASH, right?
