I had removed it coz it makes no sense (IMO) to introduce md5sum and log 
concepts at such a late stage of the LFS+BLFS build. Also these are 
(IMO) basic concept analogous to unpacking and patching packages. (IMO) 
They probably should not even be in BLFS but in LFS to be read before 
starting with the first LFS package.

Anyways it does not make much of a difference.
