I think both issues are related: if binutils is the first entry in the logs
directory, it gives BASELOG="xxx-binutils". Then the construct:
   if [ "$log" != "$BASELOG" ] ; then
     INSTALL=`perl -e 'print ('$DU1' - '$DU1PREV')';`
avoids to use non initialized DU1PREV.

Of course, in the case of CLFS, the first entry is not binutils
and all gets wrong.
Now, your patch implies that the installed file usage is not printed
for the script preceding binutils, and that grand total is
not updated.

I propose the attached patch.
