[lfs-support] How to upgrade a single package?

Hi, Chris:

I understand now.. The reason why I'm asking this question is because
yesterday I was preparing the tools in Chapter 5 using coreutils-8.19, but
today, the SVN manual has already been changed to coreutils-8.20 , however,
I still haven't finished chapter 6 yet...

But, I guess I got what you mean . I found release 7.2 which is also using
coreutils-8.19. I may be able to continue and finish building the whole
system first, before upgrading coreutils-8.19 to 8.20 ...
