When/if this is done, a lot of BLFS pacakges will need to be checked. There's a list on the clfs ticket, which might not be complete.

I think the work involved is too much for so little gain. Perhaps in the future, packages will start using the glibc attr and have libattr optional. There is too much involved with editing source and configure scripts and makefiles.

I thought it would be something interesting to try. It's more of a nightmare.

I agree with kb0iic. Closing as wontfix.
