I'm up to chroot part, just built and tested Glibc-2.27 (which passed,
noting LFS expected issues) and am next to do "Adjusting the Toolchain".

Before the chroot, I used a host system with /bin/sh which was Dash not
Bash and it seems to have worked fine.  As I said before, if things
expect /bin/sh to be Bash then this is a bug.

I backed up $LFS/tools before the chroot section, as recommended, so can
go back to that if issues encountered later.

I've been using MAKEFLAGS='-j 3' on a 2 CPU system with no problems

I didn't strip files, the book says it is optional and the symbols
provide useful info if issues encountered.

The next talk will be on the system boot scripts and config (7. System
Configuration) and booting (8. Making the LFS System Bootable).  This is
probably the most difficult bit, especially compiling the kernel to boot
your system on your hardware.
