Yes, that it a known issue. Our current stylesheets (both the DocBook-XSL 
version used and our customizations layout) are very old to use it.

Better said, almost a full rewrite to can match DocBook-XSL 1.72.1 version, 
when released. Before that, and in case LFS-6.3 is released without having 
finished the XSL upgrade, I will try to do a quick fix. 

I would to start working on the XSL rewrite the next week, using the most 
current DocBook-XSL snapshopt as the base.

I neither. As a worse scenario we could say that the PDF file for {,B}LFS-6.3 
books has been created using FOP-0.20, pointing to the BLFS-6.2 book for 
installation instructions.
