Hi Paul,

Thanks for your interest on this lfs-builder :).
The actual installwatch.so library file can be found
in the installwatch package from the following


Technically, as you can see in the lfs-builder
package, the 'escript' directory is the key of this
lfs-builder project. Escript was written far before I
had the idea of implementing this lfs-builder. So,
escript is actually a separate implementation. You can
found more technical information regarding escript in
escript/README and escript/INSTALL. The reference to
lib/escript/installwatch.so was there because I
plainly copied the whole 'escript' directory to the
lfs-builder directory.

However, I'm currently working on the lfs-builder that
uses the installwatch features. With these features,
lfs-builder can uninstall, archive installed packages,
reinstall, and many things that can make lfs-builder
be a package manager for LFS :).

Hope this will answer your queries. Thanks again for
having the time to read the hint I submitted (although
it is not posted).


  I like Salmonfish .
