But you _have_ deviated from the book, because the LFS-5.1.1 book tells 
you to use lfs-bootscripts-2.1.2, not lfs-bootscripts-2.2.1 (I know, the 
version numbers are similar, but they are not the same thing). The new 
bootscripts package requires packages that are in LFS testing/unstable, 
and won't work on LFS-5.1.1 without changes. You would be best off to 
reinstall the bootscripts using the 2.1.2 version as the book requires.
