Okay. Mine's done. I had no problems with any of the book's steps. I did have one new (for me, anyway) unexpected failure with the GCC test suite...
=== g++ tests ===

Otherwise, the GCC tests were better than for previous versions (no other unexpected failures). Anyway, I decided to press on with it. That asan_test.C thing seems to be a known issue...
If anybody knows something about this, please say it now.
I don't expect any package changes with the final LFS version, but I probably will delay building BLFS on top of this for a short while. Recently, there was a massive package update for BLFS, and there has been some talk on the mailing list about releasing a stable book version for BLFS. That hasn't happened in a long while. If that can be accomplished, I think I would prefer it. Usually, I end up splicing parts of two or three SVN versions to get through a BLFS build. I'm used to that now, but that doesn't mean I like it.
