What you have to know is that I have some of the buggiest hardware about
these days.

Mind you, it's rarely that the BLFS bootscripts cause trouble - I think
I found one typo in three builds. It's the 'installed in' scripts
(hotplug and udev in my case), i.e. where the package installs an init
script full of cavalier comments and bodges.
