Two more feature requests.

1. For the UTF-8 book, it is also needed to download 
glibc-libidn-2.3.5.tar.bz2 from lfs-matrix. Please handle this similarly 
to glibc-linuxthreads and bash-doc tarballs.

2. Please don't use "&&" between commands. Reason: sometimes there's no 
"&&" if the book says to do two commands in one screen/userinput block. 
In order to fail reliably on any error without continuing the script, 
you can add a "set -e" line just below "#!/bin/sh". This has the same 
effect as adding "&&" between all commands. Obviously, "make -k check" 
should be replaced with "make -k check || true" then.
