The LFS-6.7 book was copied over to trunk/. Not much was changed yet. The old 
book was out of date and not maintained, so I didn't think much was lost by 
deleting it.

I made new gcc-4.5.1 patches for ssp, fortify_source, and -fpie. I should add 
them to the book by Wednesday, maybe earlier. Posix capabilities (libcap2) 
should be in by the weekend. I just received a quad core system today, so my 
test builds will go faster.

I plan to rewrite the pages describing the toolchain hardening, putting them 
on a single page, and an additional page for network hardening later. And I 
plan to read the book from the beginning to see if anything should be added.

The credits to other projects or people will be (re)added along with their 

There should be regular progress each week now. I'm installing HLFS on my 
server, workstation and laptop, so anything that doesn't work right will be 
fixed quickly.

Thanks for telling me. I just fixed those links.
