6.7. Creating essential symlinks

Some programs hard-wire paths to programs which don't exist yet. In order to satisfy these programs, we create a number of symbolic links which will be replaced by real files throughout the course of this chapter when we're installing all the software.

ln -s /tools/bin/{bash,cat,pwd,stty} /bin
ln -s /tools/bin/perl /usr/bin
ln -s /tools/lib/libgcc_s.so.1 /usr/lib
ln -s bash /bin/sh
