Toolchain Adjustment broken?

Hello all,

With the upgrade to gcc 4.3.2, I believe the section in the toolchain 
adjustment in chapter 5 that deals with fixed includes is broken. For 
those of you that have recently built with jhalfs, I'd appreciate it if 
you'd look in your logs to verify that the following commands have 
actually done anything:

GCC_INCLUDEDIR=`dirname $(gcc -print-libgcc-file-name)`/include &&
find ${GCC_INCLUDEDIR}/* -maxdepth 0 -xtype d -exec rm -rvf '{}' \; &&
rm -vf `grep -l "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE" ${GCC_INCLUDEDIR}/*` &&

I believe that this is because the 'fixed includes' we're trying to 
remove are now actually stored in the equivalent of:

`dirname $(gcc -print-libgcc-file-name)`/include-fixed

The build is probably succeeding for most of you because the host is 
similar enough to the LFS system we're building for the changes not to 
matter, but it breaks on my RH 6.2 host unless I remove the files 
'wchar.h' and 'sys/stat.h' located in the include-fixed directory 
mentioned above.

I believe the commands above would work as they were intended if we just 
changed 'include' to 'include-fixed'.

We might also be able to simplify them to just:

rm -vf `grep -l "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE" ${GCC_INCLUDEDIR/* -R`
