Yeah, if you recall, even before you devised your next gen method, this 
is the direction Alexander and I wanted to go, and I do think it's the 
right way.

LFS moves slowly, though, and people are pushing for a release in the 
near future. So that means making sure the current build method works. 
After that, we can start looking at cross compiling the initial 
toolchain like you do.
