Until gcc-4.7 comes out I'm recommending we use the exiting jh branch of 
lfs and go ahead and put in these changes now with the release candidate 
packages.  Then we can do some jhalfs style builds and test things out 
from there.  When the new tool chain packages are released, we can then 
merge them into svn with more confidence.

We may also want to roll the next version of LFS to 8.0 (September) due 
to this change.

I do monitor the GRUB mailing list and see they still have a lot of 
warnings they are fixing.  By the time they get to the GRUB 2.0 release, 
I think --disable-werror will not be needed any more.
