 A handful of those are either in LFS-7.4 or provided by something
in LFS-7.4 (bc, eject, pkg-config).

 In the absence of reports from users, that seems all we can do.

 I'm using dhcp as a client, but I haven't tested the server part.
I could tag it, but I'm reluctant until I know both parts work.
Will be starting a server build soon-ish, but that will take some
time and then I'll need to ensure that everything is still working.
That will pick up dhcp server, fetchmail, hdparm, mutt, procmail.

 How long have I got to tag those ?

 Also, I keep going on about indexing the perl-modules as programs
instead of 'other'.  That's on my ToDo list, but not a priority.

 But  I'd also like to add tags to the few I've built (we tag Python
modules at the moment, but not perl).  Of course I haven't built
most of those in the book, so a lot will still lack any tags. Any
opinions about that ?
