    32   <para>The created symlink enables the toolchain to be compiled so that
    33   it always refers to <filename class="directory">/cross-tools</filename>,
    34   meaning that the compiler, assembler, and linker will be available for
    35   use later if some unforseen circumstances happen.</para>
     32  <para>The symlink isn't technically necessary (though the book's
     33  instructions do assume its existence), but is there mainly for
     34  consistency (because /tools is also symlinked to $LFS/tools) and to
     35  somewhat simplify the installation of the cross-compile tools.</para>
