I just finished a build a couple hours ago, and also could not find it.  
Since I will later need db anyways, I installed it and did not need the 
patch.  If I see it anywhere, I will let you know.

On the topic of LFS unstable, there are two points I would like to make:

1.  We replaced net-tools with iproute2.  I could not build iproute2 
with the normal sanitized kernel headers.  I had to (as suggested in the 
INSTALL file) edit the Makefile and change the kernel headers directory 
to /tools/glibc-kernheaders.  Then it would build.  If this is the 
correct solution, I do not know.

2.  Now that I have finished the build, I have one problem.  I cannot 
build some programs (namely the kernel) since the hostname binary is 
missing.  According to my google search, it was in the net-tools 
package.  Is there a different package we will use to supplement 
iproute2?  Or did I overlook/miss something?

Thanks for the great work all!
