 I'd like to get tzdata separated - I was holding fire on that until
I heard feedback to your suggestion of just creating a directory.

 I'd also like to add the ru_RU.UTF-8 locale for sed, with the patch
to stop the tests failing if that is present [ instead of XFAIL when
the locale is not present ].

 The only other thing in LFS itself is the flex patch to fix the
testsuite for recent bison - I *think* you added that ?

 Unfortunately, my current desktop build is stuck at gudev [ just
raised on -support ] : might be specific to me, like the automake
tests.  I've also got a kernel problem (mentioned there) which means
I'm not willing to use my kvm switch while this box is running, and
I'd *really* like to investigate that (3.5.0 was great, this is

das eine Mal als Tragödie, das andere Mal als Farce
