How about I give you the md5sum for the patch. It looks like the book
does not match the patch.
Run the script with the config params you have chosen but _do not_
select the auto run of the makefile .. (ie. no -M) The script will fail
but you can manually edit patches.ent in the hlfs-development directory.
Re-run the script but make sure you _do not_ request a 'cleaning' of
the build directory. (ie. no -R) and you should pick up the coreutils
patch should validate.
keep me informed.
