Comment (by randy at linuxfromscratch.org):

 My opinion (since you asked) is that the book is perfectly fine the
 way it is. There is a note explaining that if the package was not
 installed in LFS that you need to install it or another package.

 I don't see what the bug is all about, nor do I see that it should
 be a bug. I don't think these packages should be added as dependencies,
 as they are expected to be installed.

 The note simply serves as a support-protection device and a courtesy
 to users who may not have installed the package.

 I'm for doing absolutely nothing other than closing the bug.
