For just the packages in the book, you can get my Makefile 
( and do 
"make checklist.html" the resulting checklist.html is an easy way to 
visit all the source directories and see if anything new is there.

It's kinda low-tech but only takes about 10 minutes to go through them 

By the way I'll have a bunch of updates to LFSMake very soon.
