OK.  I shot off an email to Greg.  My guess is that he won't have a
problem with acknowledgement given.

For a little preview, here's a shell script that includes the prep
commands used by Greg in his gsbuild
scripts.  The diffing commands are very simple, too.  I'll post them


Another option is to use Ken Moffat's farce tool to do the prep.  He
also has the diffing included in farce.  farce goes a bit further than
Greg's ICA functions.  I like to use both in case one misses
something, but it's probably overkill.


I haven't said anything about controlling and looping the actual LFS
build.  I found this to be a little tricky.  This would be the most
important part that would have to be decided in any of the ALFS
