I don't think so, there's nothing jhalfs writes in there that I can 
think of.

Ok, if it is 2.3.1, you may have some issues using it with the 6.4 book. 
I can't think of anything specific, I just know it's not a supported 
book for that version. It may very well run ok, but if you run into 
problems, you will want to pull the SVN version, which can be done with 
this command:

svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/ALFS/jhalfs/trunk jhalfs-trunk

I'll see about getting a new stable release out, it really needs to be done.
