environment help

Hi All,

I am using nALFS 1.1.7 and building a custom profile for LFS CVS 
(currently 20030603).  I am having some issues with the <environment> 
set of tags.  As most of you know, we have to make sure that /stage1 is 
at the front of the path and we need to turn of hashing in bash with 
'set +h'.  In my profile I have the following:

<stage name="Phase 2: Creating the toolbox packages">

			<variable name="PATH">&toolbox-dir;:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin
			<variable name="LC_ALL">POSIX</variable>
			<variable name="TERM">linux</variable>

	<execute command="set +h"></execute>
	<execute command="umask 0022"></execute>

blah, blah, blah

[Mozilla mail has wrapped this, sorry]

I would assume that all commands issued in the same stage with a set of 
<stageinfo> tags would be run under the user set with the <user> tags, 
but this does not seem to be the case.

To test my theory, I added an <execute> tag for 'env' after all this 
(and before the binutils pass1 file), and nALFS shows me root's 
environment not lfs's.  How do I know that nALFS has set the environment 

The issue I am having is that when I get to the glibc in ch5, configure 
does not find the newly compiled gcc in /stage1, instead it finds it in 
/usr from my host.  If I do the commands by hand, everything works great.

Any ideas?
