Yep - that's basically it..

The dependencies are for the build.  The install instructions go into Appendix A
then we discuss use of the packages in the appropriate chapter of the
book.  Therefore, there would be no dependencies (as far as I know) for
wvdial or fetchmail (I use both!) but we'd discuss actual *use* of them
(which requires either a network connection or pppd modem stuff) in
Chapter 6 for wvdial and Chapter 8 for fetchmail.

Discussion should be on blfs-dev really (hint hint!) blfs-book is just
normally the list which recieves bugzilla emails... You should submit
contributions to there and CC them to me please so that I definately
don't miss them!  (Yes - I *am* that stupid)
