This CD is to be included in the LFS-6.0 book, right?

If so, including the stable BLFS is pointless. Much of the
good stuff will be broken trying to build against an LFS-6.0
system. Plus, all the stable BLFS packages are way outdated.

And SVN BLFS is still got a ways to go to be compatible with
LFS-6.0. You decide, but including stable BLFS (or even SVN
BLFS) on the LFS-6.0 CD would be a mistake. There's simply
too much brokenness and untested stuff right now.
