Overall, thank you for your detailed comments.  They are much appreciated.

You're very welcome. Perhaps you want to talk to my students about handing
their assignments in on time - that was a very quick response :)

Noted. I should have realized that no-one in their right minds would
manually number sections. I'll rerun some of the test suites that differed
running the LFS kernel; I don't expect differences. The logs for glibc,
gcc, and binutils were pretty much identical to those posted for my
architecture at lfs/build-logs.

Regarding grub: The reason I made those suggestions had more to do with the
sheer bulk of grub's documentation. It is very daunting for someone
starting out. People want quick fixes nowadays, so I do agree with you -
let them search the documentation. My students do a lot of moping in this
regard, but are generally quite positive when I bump into them several
years after graduation.

All the best,
