It does match the CVS HEAD book; where did you get the book you 
referenced above? I suspect you are looking at the "daily CVS snapshot", 
which at the moment is misleading because there are three active 
branches in CVS right now. The "daily CVS snapshot" is actually from the 
5.1 branch (currently 5.1-pre2 plus some minor changes), so it matches 
the profile-LFS-5.1-pre2 profile. The profile-LFS-CVS profile matches 
the CVS HEAD book, which is currently only available at the link I 
posted earlier.

I'm sorry you got caught in the middle here; the web pages are in the 
process of being updated right now, and once those changes are in place 
you would known for sure which book you were looking at :-)
