Erm.. I haven't changed it.  Gerard maintains those files.  Let me just
check if I have the uptodate version in the BLFS tree...

OK - They weren't up to date but they are now ;-)

something like:

export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous at linuxfromscratch.org:/home/cvsroot
cvs checkout BLFS

should do it

you can then run (keeping CVSROOT set)
cvs update from within the BLFS dir to update when you want to.
