Yes, I've got an ntp directory inside blfs-root.  It's got an empty 
dependencies directory, ntp-index.xml and xslproc.log.  The log file 
contains some interesting stuff:

I/O error : Attempt to load network entity 
warning : failed to load external entity 
compilation error: file ../blfs-xml/stylesheets/blfs-chunked.xsl line 8
xsl: import : unable to load

There are similar errors for chunck-common.xsl, Manifest.xsl and 

I was going to send the files to you but I don't have email going on my 
LFS machine yet, or any way to move the files to Windows.  Kind of a 
pain actually.
