I've been only been trying two different mirrors:
Normally I download missing packages manually and put them on my local
file-server. The automatic package harvesting in HLFS always fail on the
md5sum of the dejagnu-1.4.4.tar.bz2 file when I'm downloading from the
ftp mirrors, and not stops before everything is downloaded.

Indeed you're right. My mistake about the uClibc-locale archive, I had
renamed that one myself a while ago. The real problem is that the hack
in the master.sh expects to find uClibc-locale*.tar.bz2, which I can't
find anywhere, only uClibc-locale*.tar.gz files.
I've got both *.gz and *.bz2 versions of the grsecurity*.patch, both
should work, but they don't correspond in the generated scripts:
From the patches file:
From the 136-kernel script:
tar --no-same-owner --no-same-permissions -xf \
install -m444 /sources/linux-184.108.40.206-pseudo_random-1.patch /usr/src
install -m444 /sources/grsecurity-2.1.8-220.127.116.11-200601211647.patch.bz2
My guess is that the patches file is correct and the kernel script is
wrong (according to the HLFS-dev book).
Naturally, the grsec*.gz file gets downloaded, and the 136-kernel
scripts spits out an error about not finding the grsec*.bz2 file.
