The real issue is that until now in the LFS book there was no mention about 
the actual packages filenames, then in the jhalfs code the names are 
generated from general.ent plus a hardcoded .tar.bz2 (except for additional 
packages, whos names are actually into the book commands).

I have ready a patch for LFS to put full dowloads links for all packages, like 
the ones in CLFS, HLFS, and BLFS.

After that, we could just to use a XSL to generate wget scripts instead using 
the hacks that we are doing now.
