Comment (by dnicholson at linuxfromscratch.org):

 For the first advisory, I plan to update xfs to 1.0.5. This release just
 has a manpage fix and two security related commits vs. 1.0.4. This is
 simpler than applying the patches in the advisory since that would require
 the autotools regeneration, breaking the flow of the book.

 For the second advisory, the patches will be applied to libXfont-1.2.8 and
 xorg-server-1.2.0, which are currently in the book.
