Please, port that HLFS fixes to trunk and 1.0 branch.

At this momment, only menuconfig should be developed on the experimental 
branch (I'm now trying to learn the Config.in sintax) until be sure that it 
play nice. Maybe we could to merge it to trunk in 1-2 weeks

HLFS fixes and the stand-alone BLFS code should be made in trunk and ported to 
experimental and/or 1.0 when required. jhalfs-1.0 will work for LFS-6.2, but 
for CLFS-1.0 we will need to release jhalfs-1.1 with the fix to the "compile 
the keymap into the kernel" issue.

Be aware that several BLFS packages may have issues when installed in that 
way, thus a full BLFS support in chroot mode don't looks feasible to me.

Before playing with that, that could need changes on the current jhalfs code, 
I would to have BLFS working as an stand-alone code able to install/update 
packages on a running system. That will show us also on what non-LFS binaries 
the BLFS code depends on.

After finish the stand-alone code, then we will need to allow jhalfs to 
install the BLFS code dependencies to can use it on a fresh system. Done 
that, we will can start playing with the full chroot installation and see 
what packages can't be installed in that way, if any.

I will be very bussy 1-2 days finishing the LFS-6.2 Spanish translation.
