Packages required for jhalfs

Before it can parse the LFS book for commands, jhalfs needs to have a local copy of the book's XML source. Currently, jhalfs relies on Subversion to ensure that it has the most up-to-date version of the LFS Book. There are build instructions in BLFS.

To extract the commands from the LFS book, jhalfs relies on xsltproc from the libxslt package. There are build instructions in BLFS.

If you want jhalfs to automatically download the source packages LFS uses, you'll need to have wget installed. There are build instructions in BLFS.
