Doesn't really apply when you can rebuild the entire file system in a
short time and the data contained had legacy information that doesn't
apply to embedded.

13  <para os="a">In this chapter, we enter the building site and start
14  constructing the CLFS system in earnest. The installation of this
15  software is straightforward. Although in many cases the installation
16  instructions could be made shorter and more generic, we have opted
17  to provide the full instructions for every package to minimize the
18  possibilities for mistakes.  The key to learning what makes a Linux
19  system work is to know what each package is used for and why the user
20  (or the system) needs it.  For every installed package, a summary of
21  its contents is given, followed by concise descriptions of each
22  program and library the package installed.</para>
23
24  <para os="b">The order that packages are installed in this chapter needs to
25  be strictly followed to ensure that no program accidentally acquires a
26  path referring to <filename class="directory">${CLFS}/cross-tools</filename>
27  hard-wired into it. For the same reason, do not compile packages in
28  parallel. Compiling in parallel may save time (especially on dual-CPU
29  machines), but it could result in a program containing a hard-wired
30  path to <filename class="directory">${CLFS}/cross-tools</filename>, which will
31  cause the program to stop working when that directory is
32  removed.</para>
