The book is rebuilt daily and the udev-config and bootscripts are 
extracted from the book's xml source.  This causes a daily change in the 
tar files due to timestamps.  It also means the md5sum changes for these 
files daily.  There is a fixup in the book's Makefile to update the book 
to the current checksums.

The fixup ensures that today's book and today's udev-config and 
bootscript tarballs match up.  That's good.  It also means that today's 
tarballs don't match the md5sums in yesterday's book even when the 
contents don't change.  That's unfortunate, but I don't know of a better 
way to automate incorporation of changes for the tarballs.
