Actually I confirmed the locations of all those patches as I was 
updating the URLs. My mistake was in updating the file; I did not change 
"lfs/cvs" to "downloads/gcc" for the gcc patches. These problems have 
been corrected.

While I certainly can see how the script would have gotten these correct 
the first time, I'm not sure I would want to use a script to generate a 
complete new profile just to check for changes from the existing one. 
Also, I really don't have time to compare the output from your script to 
the "official" profile at this point, my spare time is being consumed by 
other projects... How close is your generated profile to the one I have 
built? Can you post a "diff -ur" between them, so I can see what the 
differences are and we can determine whether they are important enough 
to be addressed?
