I know for one, I've been really careful to ensure that the build
entities are updated as well, when I update package versions. I
know over in LFS there's packages that are grossly misrepresented
with disk space and build times.

Did you check these entities? I noticed they weren't updated.

If so, I'll commit the patch, if not, I'll build it real quick and use
your input to update the book.

Thanks, Jeremy
