I could agree to an extent, however, ever since I started with LFS 3.2
just using ftp to ftp.openssl.org and ftp.freebsd.org for openssl and  
and then ftp.gnu.org for wget provides no super duper problems. I  
think if
the group starts putting blfs tools into lfs then everyone will start  
coming up
with requests to put this and that in LFS and that will mean there  
will be no
more need for BLFS. Some people won't even care to have ssl or wget.

As far as I know you can even ftp to get the openssl man pages patch  
the lfs mirrors in the blfs area.
