I'm writing here because I figured that someone knows more about this 
than I do. BLFS currently has libidn-0.6.14 which was released in May of 
2007. On libidn's home page,, there 
is a note saying that libidn-1.0 was released in July of 2007 and it's 
listing download locations on GNU's main ftp server instead of the alpha 
ftp server. The latest stable version appears to be 1.9 which was 
released in July of 2008.

Is there a particular reason that BLFS never updated (apart from lack of 
time/resources)? I just want to make sure there's no technical reason.
