I think that's probably fine, with one adjustment. I don't think we need
to get into the fine details of the toolchain outside the appendix, but
a very simple overview of what we're doing and why would still be nice
at the beginning somewhere. Otherwise, we may start to get floods of
questions like, "Why do I have to build GCC 3 times?", or "Can't I just
skip chapter 5?". Some brief overview which then gives a link to the
appendix should suffice, I would think.
