   I needed to change ISP and have been off line for a while. I have not
have a chance to review all the changes in depth but I do not see any
faults. All the changes you made look fine with one exception. (see below)
CHROOT:       SHELL=/tools/bin/bash
CHROOT:       $chapter6
   Is this a valid 'make' construct, having duplicate labels? (I am no
make guru)

   I think the PACO patch should be removed. If jhalfs-3.0 ever leaves
the ground hooks will be placed in the code to allow people to add their
own flavour of pm.
