Bug in current unstable LFS profile

Hey all!

Just wanted to report this.  There's some bad instructions for shadow in 
the existing unstable profile.

The book has the following command in shadow:

sed -i '/groups/d' man/Makefile

Which was translated into the profile as:


The problem is, the instructions in the LFS build remove the entire line containing the word groups, while the profile simply deletes the word groups.

This results in an error in shadow compilation.

Just wanted to let you know.
