When I comiled glibc should I have used CFLAGS="-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64
-D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE" and the same for fileutils?

 I've read the FAQ probably 20 times and didn't see
any reference to having to do somthing special for LFS support. Even so
every time I did read It found somthing I thought I hadn't read before.
20 more times???

I did that: --with-headers=/usr/src/linux-2.4.0/include. I've patched
kernel tree with the linux-2.4.0-reiserfs-3.6.25-patch so why should I
use Reiser for LFS?
