[lfs-support] A small correction is necessary to some text

In previous versions of LFS, util-linux was built early in Chapter 6. In version 7.5 it is built much later. The build parameters have been adjusted to reflect this but some of the explanatory material has not been updated to match. There are references to things not being built "because util-linux has already installed them". This should now read "because util-linux will install them later". The relevant sections are for procps, e2fsprogs and inetutils.

It's a minor grouse but I think it could cause a lot of confusion in novices (it certainly confused me and this is my second LFS build).

Just out of curiosity, why was it moved?
