That is slated for removal soon.  It's there to side-step situations 
where the hosts toolchain may be newer than the toolchain we're 
building, so may support additional features.  For example, LFS 5.1.1 
used binutils 2.14, and would fail compilation on a Fedora Core 2 host, 
because FC2 supported the --as-needed flag in binutils, while ours did not.
