I was asleep yet, when writing last message.

After Ken and Bruce, thinking again and will probably keep downloading.

Further reasons:

Its simpler and easier just

download, download, uncompress, uncompress


download, uncompress, configure, make, make install, remove

and in git

make man, make install-man

Also, new package, new problems, errors and incompatibilities possible.

Finally, it is not one, but two, if I remember xmlto, also cited in the book (Not yet installed in LFS"7.0 svn"):

download, uncompress, configure, make, make install, remove

for xmlto also.

Again, I will keep downloading pages.

Again, it would suffice to refer to them in the pages, if you do not want to modify installation instructions for the page?

But, as they say, it is your call.

Thanks again
