PLFS suggested chapter 6-perl change (add /etc/hosts)

  * perl - be sure to perform the "Creating the /etc/hosts file" commands 
before the perl installation

Is the only reason for doing so to be able to pass the 'make check' (or was it 
make test) phase? If not necessary (other than for cosmetic purposes) I 
rather keep that in chapter 7 with the rest of the networking.
