I have been sitting back and watching this thread for a while. It seems 
that we may have a situation here. My understanding of the key goal of 
the HLFS is project is a hardened version of the LFS book. The LFS book 
should be dictiating what gets into the HLFS book. We haven't used the 
2.4 kernel in a long time, the only true secure kernel is the 2.2, which 
Trustix is using.

My vote is that HLFS should stick to the packages in LFS, with the only 
deviation of patches needed for a secure system.

Just my 2 cents worth.
