Based on your previous post re the inclusion of a mojority of the hint
text in the book, I felt you might be focused on it while doing your
upgrades. Since the hint tend to run behinf the test scripts, vis-a-vis
versions, maybe some new flags, etc., I just wanted to give a "heads up"
to suggest that you use the scripts in conjunction with the hints text.
AFAIK, the scripts do have the latest of everything (except that some
package versions are not critical to the pure effort, like which
binutils you choose to use is not critical).

Didn't mean to alarm unnecessarily.
