Since there only a few packages that differ between sysv and systemd (sysv 
+ systemd + dbus) I set up the wget list to always get all the packages 
for both revisions.

I didn't start out that way so the "for sysv" comment is wrong.  It should be:

Generating consolidated wget list at $(BASEDIR)/wget-list ...

I'd prefer to leave it that way.  It is important for the daily currency 
scripts. The extra downloads only add about 2% to the total download size.

Note that the BLFS wget file is consolidated also, but I'm not aware of 
anything in the sysv version that is not in the systemd version.
