Use bash version 2.0 or later. Version 1 had LFS problems, some
surprising. In some cases you couldn't pipe ("|") or redirect more than
2GB of data.
You'll also want to verify your specific 'perl' binary, which is used
like a shell.
Other places we had to make modifications were the FTP servers and
clients, most of which do not have LFS.
