Hi.

In
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/development/chapter05/gcc-pass1.html
one can read

   The following command will compile GCC not once, but several times. It
   uses the programs compiled in a first round to compile itself a second
   time, and then again a third time. It then compares these second and
   third compiles to make sure it can reproduce itself flawlessly. This
   is called "bootstrapping". Building GCC in this way ensures that it
   was compiled correctly and is now the default configuration for the
   released package. Continue with compiling by running:
make

My question is : `make' or `make bootstrap' which was said in an other book
(I cann't remember whichone ).

Thanks for confirmation or infirmation.
