I always refresh my memory when upgrading software by looking at the 
relevant chapter 6 page. Two things I saw today:

In http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/view/cvs/chapter06/ncurses.html

the second command explanation should have 5.3 instead of 5.2.

In http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/view/cvs/chapter06/less.html

the --sysconfdir option may no longer be needed. As of version 376:

>The system-wide lesskey file has been moved from the bin directory to the 
>etc directory and renamed from .sysless to sysless. (For backwards 
>compatibility, .sysless in the bin directory is still recognized.)

(At the least, this was the sole reason that the gentoo people added 
--sysconfdir -- see http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8639 .)
