13    <para>You should be able to build a CLFS system from just about any
14    recent Linux distrubtion. Your host system should have the following
15    software with the minimum versions indicated. Also note that many
16    distributions will place software headers into separate packages, often in
17    the form of <quote>[package-name]-devel</quote> or
18    <quote>[package-name]-dev</quote>. Be sure to install those if
19    your distribution provides them.</para>
