Archaic just brought it to my attention (clutbat!) that the old versions
of jhalfs will still work fine. When I change the LFS packages (still
haven't started this yet) I won't be touching any of the 6.1 or 6.1.1
versions since they are already set, there are tarballs and so on, and
there is no reason to change these. Same with BLFS 6.1 packages. It
would be too difficult to find the original packages and there is no
real reason to convert them.
So old stable versions of jhalfs will be fine as far as I know. Just
development, udev_update and future versions will need to use the file
formats from the original developers though. Sorry.
