Managing required packages in nALFS

Hello all ALFS'ers,
AFAIK, ALFS (if there is such a beast) does not provide any mean to check the required
packages when building a new one. While it is not very important when building a LFS,
which is a rather sequential process, it is more so when building BLFS packages
as we are more likely in that case to build only some of them, and in a random order.
After having been bitten a few times, i patched nALFS to :
- create a stamp file after a package has been build successfully
- provide a <check> element that allows to check if a given stamp file exists,
and interrupt the process if it does not
- provide a <stamp> element to build a stamp file outside of a package,
An example of use of <check> is :
<package name="librep" version="&librep-version;">
<stage name="Unpacking a package.">
More details and the patch are available at http://vassilidzuba.nerim.net
as well as an updated version of the documentation of the DTD.
Any comment ?
