The book is in the SVN repo at .../LFS/trunk/BOOK, while the bootscripts
and udev-config packages are at .../LFS/trunk/bootscripts and
.../LFS/trunk/udev-config.  If you check out .../LFS/trunk, you already
get the same rev of all of them (which is what I've done).  :-)

There's also the option to (perhaps) wget the bootscripts and(/or)
udev-config tarballs from downloads.linuxfromscratch.org and extract
them.  That way if the book and those packages ever diverge (e.g. as
udev-config has recently; the current udev-config trunk won't work with
the current BOOK trunk), you don't get the wrong scripts or rules files.
