Still the book rendering

Hi again,

To keep compatibility while the mirrors sync the recent website changes, I've 
not removed the lfs/{view,downloads}/{test,cvs} directories. The 
lfs/{view,downloads}/stable directories also need to be removed right before 
the 5.1 release so the rendering script can replace them with a symlink.

I've also commented out this code:

sed -i '4i\
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">' 

As the recent xsl stylesheet version take care of this properly.

I'd like to suggest also adding the following parameter to xsltproc:

-stringparam chunk.quietly 1

or embbed it into the xsl stylesheet, to suppress those "Writing ... from ..." 
debug messages.

And finally, the PDF output is not produced by the script yet, as I do not 
know if it's already suitable for automated generation (i.e. does not require 
manual tuning). Should I already enable it? Does Belgarath already have the 
necessary tools for PDF generation?

Also, there is no "txt" or "nochunks" Makefile targets yet.

That's it :)
