Sweet. I'll delete the fork and wait it out then as I had other stuff 
come up and wasn't able to work on it more than updating the package 
versions and md5s (not the build instructions). There are some changes 
that I'll be making locally, just adding BLFS packages that affect the 
base packages (ACL, ATTR, bc, Coreutils, Cracklib, Linux-PAM, OpenSSL, 
Python, Shadow, and Util-Linux off the top of my head).
