Well, I did proposed the inclusion of e2fsprogs because including udev
in chapter 5 would have been a bit more complicated (or, at least,
that's what I though due to the concern about having (or not having) to
run it before chroot).

I saw in CLFS e2fsprogs is included so basically I kind-of copied the
installation instructions, but I suppose even if we don't need more than
liduuid, it won't do any harm to install the other associated libraries
