I know there was much work put into rearranging the build order of
the various packages so that as much as possible would be built in
alphabetical order.

I'm trying to figure out why the binaries in /tools/{,s}bin wouldn't
work. I'm sure there's a good reason, I'd just like to know what it
is. :-)

Same with the Sed package, why couldn't /tools/bin/sed be adequate
until Sed is built in Chapter 6?
