The bootscripts are uploaded in ascii, ready to run and a script copies all the
bootscripts into a tarball. I do not propose to change that. The purpose of
putting the scripts in the book was educational/convenience but not meant as a
means for installing the scripts.
What I did in the xml was fairly simple. I just copied the scripts from the
subversion checkout and ran a sed to convert things like & to &. Example:
sed -e '/\&/\&\;/ ../bootscripts/lfs/init.d/halt > appendices/halt.script
In the XML:
<!ENTITY halt SYSTEM "halt.script">
<sect1 id="haltscript" role="wrap">
and later in the Makefile after the scripts are incorporated
