Well, if the BLFS book is going to undergo major changes, one of the 
changes I'd like to see is that packages that are present in two 
chapters (openssl, rsync, etc.) actually have complete instructions in 
both chapters. I can't really say why I'd prefer to see it that way 
(other than my own BLFS build profile has it that way), but if this was 
done then there would be cross-chapter usage of the same entities.

However, this idea might be completely without merit <G>, in which case 
the cross-chapter entity stuff is not an issue.
