This should be posted to the lfs-dev mailinglist, not to this list lfs-book

by the way, instead of using a binary program you can very easily obtain
the same kind of list while running this:

touch tmpfile
make install
find / -cnewer tmpfile

you can tell find to omit certain directories like /proc /tmp /home or
wherever you don't install files into anyways.

Example implementations can be found at
ftp.linuxfromscratch.org/misc/pkginst and
