It's nice to be able to use the lfs bootstrap to set up a glibc chroot  
on the target. If people _want_ glibc, we should be able to get them a  
glibc system without ever actually cross compiling glibc. :)

Remember, one of the goals of the project is to eliminate the need for  
cross compiling.

Thanks. Sorry I've been distracted recently, still catching up...
