Now there's a good idea. Now if all packages we use with LFS were actually
actively maintained through freshmeat it would even make our lives (lfs book
editors) easier too. As it stands, we still have to go all offical sites 
every other week to check if something new has been released.

I'll add this idea to the bug tracking database. One of the editors (me or
somebody else) will get to Freshmeat and add all the deps.

Thanks again for the idea,
