Well, I've sent to this list the packages I used in my most recent
LFS x86 build. Seems stable to me. I've build a bit of BLFS on top
and so far all is good. I've booted using the conventional bootscripts
and the LSB scripts. Both booted fine.

There is a ticket in the LFS-Trac that says the current Libtool has
issues (in particular Linux-PAM was said to not build properly), but
it worked just fine for me.

I'll go ahead and update LFS-SVN to the packages I used, and as you've
mentioned DJ, you can go behind me and clean up. The GCC fixincludes
seems to be an issue and I've yet to try the full method used by Greg
to get rid of the Glibc-2.8 iconv and math errors, but so far I'm not
seeing any issues.

More to follow...
