So, as this statement applies to the current situation and bug, are you
saying that the LiveCD should release a 6.1-4 CD with this fix in it? If
so, then what book and nALFS profile does the CD include? The CD itself
would be fixed, but the instructions it provides to the user for
building LFS would still be broken.
Unless you're resting this statement on the belief that the user will
actually visit the LFS site, read the errata and make the necessary
change to their build/nALFS profile...
