I've now also added an entity called "lfs65_needs_update". See the
Sendmail package for an example of what it looks like.

Use this entity if you know current sources will build on an LFS-6.5
platform, but you don't have time to do the complete book update.
You only need to insert one little line and commit. That way, as
folks use the BLFS SVN book to build against LFS-6.5, they'll at least
know there is a working solution.

That entity will be replaced with the "lfs65_checked" when the actual
book update is done.
