I've been looking into it lately and it's unfortunately not as simple as just
'activating' LFS support for the usual syscalls.

Will be looking further into it.

Read ya, Phil

OK, took me the last couple of days to make it work as it was as i
suspected a bug in the code that prevented it from just working.

A Rawhide version will be out in the next few days that fixes this
problem among a few other things.

Read ya, Phil
