Yeah, sorry about that.  I reorganized where some files are on the 
mirrors (and put symlinks in their place) and it took a bit to rsync.  
It is all up and running again now though.

If that is a stable version, you can probably just use that one for your

You would need to put it into /mnt/lfs/lfs-livecd/packages/xfsprogs.  
Then the makefile will find it and not download it.  At least this is
