If you are talking bout including inetutils in the book, I don't think it'd
be a big
deal to create a properly formatted version of IANA's protocols and
services in some subdir of lfs-bootscripts-X.XX.tar.bz2, as that is an
archive maintained by LFS anyways, and has to be downloaded.  Perhaps
these could be included wether a switch to inetutils is made or not.

FYI:  A switch to inetutils was suggested a couple of times before and was
quickly shotdown as there was really no pressing reason to change.
