I already ran into problems yesterday, when trying to compile m4 (some header
file not found). Googling suggested that it had to do with the version of
glibc, but no solution. I once used the LFS livecd to extract the fs image and
then chroot to use it as host. If the LFS site would provide some images of
systems known to work as hosts, it would solve this kind of problem, but of
course it would be more overhead for the devs (much lighter than keeping a live
CD, though).
