Message:

Change instructions for removing .la files, since openldap needs to

Also some cosmetics on xml...

    406406    <title>Stripping One More Time</title>
    407407
    408     <para>In LFS, stripping of debugging symbols was discussed a couple of
    409     times.  When building BLFS packages, there are generally no special
    410     instructions that discuss stripping again.  It is probably not a good
    411     idea to strip an executable or a library while it is in use, so exiting
    412     any windowing environment is a good idea.  Then you can do:</para>
    413 
    414     <screen><userinput>find /{,usr/}{bin,lib,sbin} -type f -exec strip --strip-unneeded {} \;</userinput></screen>
    415 
    416     <para>If you install programs in other directories such as /opt or /usr/local,
    417     you may want to strip the files there too.</para>
    418 
    419     <para>For more information on stripping, see <ulink
    420     url="http://www.technovelty.org/linux/stripping-shared-libraries.html"/>.</para>

    426434
    427     <para>One of the side effects of packages that use Autotools, including
    428     libtool, is that they create many files with an .la extension.  These
    429     files are not needed in an LFS environment.  If there are conflicts with
    430     pkgconfig entries, they can actually prevent successful builds.  You
    431     may want to consider removing these files periodically:</para>
    432 
    433     <screen><userinput>find /lib /usr/lib -not -path "*Image*" -a -name \*.la -delete</userinput></screen>
    434 
    435     <para>The above command removes all .la files with the exception of those that have
    436     "Image" as a part of the path.  These .la files are used by the
    437     ImageMagick programs.  There may be other exceptions by packages not in BLFS.</para>

     451      respectively.  There may be other exceptions by packages not in BLFS.
