Right now, yes.

Well looking at LFS Development MD5SUMS, there are multiple bz2 files
for many packages. A quick look has:
There are also files that are not applicable to the standard x86 book:
aboot, hlfs patchs, mips patchs, sparc patches, gcc-3.4.x, nALFS,
I wonder if there would be a way to pull all the files from a book and
generate custom MD5SUMS files specific for each book.
What would be ideal is to be able to download the files and do:
md5sum -C MD5SUMS.LFS.X86
and check all the files.
Perhaps all this is not really necessary. Perhaps a script or Makefile
target that uses the jhalfs files "packages" and "patches" to do a check
of the files is all that I would like. I know that the jhalfs script
already dows this upon download, but some kind of separate integrity
check would be useful.
