.//program-build directories


Perhaps this question is addressed somewhere in the LFS book but i couldnt find it, so here goes... when building some programs (such as bin-utils, e2fsprogs, glibc, etc) do the instructions call for creating a seperate "program-build" directory? Does this create certian advantages or does it just "have to be done" this way?

thanks in advance

No advantages, just how the installation docs for those packages recommend installing that package. More information can be found in the lfs-dev mailinglist archives.
