Yeah, I'd gotten as far as running md5sum on the patch I had downloaded,
but I was uncertain whether or not I should consider patches.ent to be
authoritative or not.

It's still gonna die.  The book wants binutils-2.17-pt_pax-1.patch,
which is not available yet (from the script's preferred sites, or
manually from  I
see an available binutils-2.16.1-pt_pax-1.patch, so I'll try renaming
that accordingly and see if it'll apply, and if so if it will build and
what the tests do...

Seems like it would be simpler to download a canonical svn-20060510
book, point jhalfs at it, and go.  I was expecting to see something I
recognized from 'svn list svn://', but
no dice.  As work on the book progresses, how does one access earlier
