There are instructions in the 4.1 book at the end of the install of netkit 
and in the cvs book i believe the files are included in lfs-utils. I have 
heard of a few people on these lists doing lfs rpms but i don't know if 
anyone made them public. Ther is, however, an rpm hint at 
hints.linuxfromscratch.org on how to use rpm with lfs as a package manager.
