16 I'd like to take it into the bleeding edge envrionment, but I'll lay off
17 upgrading to glibc 2.2.2. Ideally, what I want is to make build.tbz2
18 with my preferred host and cflag settings or install off the current
19 iso, and rebuild the base system with my host and cflags settings and
20 just reinstall those rebuilt packages ontop of the existing ones.

25 Either way, I'll need some pointers. What's the best way to go about
26 this in your opinion (install and build, or new build.tbz2)? And I'll
27 need pointers on making a build.tbz2 if that's the case.
29 As always, thanks in advance...
