I would like to kindly request that you use the development version of
BLFS systemd. 7.6-systemd is highly outdated, and there will no longer
be any stable releases of BLFS systemd. BLFS systemd will be going to
a rolling release, sort of like how BLFS was prior to 7.3. This
decision is due to a lack of manpower and time on my end.
