I was able to at least fix the problem with overlapping text rendering in "my" 
translated book. But this is a non-issue for the english book.

Unfortunately I don't believe that I have the time and the knowledge to fix 
the other problems. But I remember that Manuel helped me out with such 
problems. The line length problem with udev rules ans such is a general 
problem and I really don't know if it is possible to solve it with XSL 
stylesheets ?!

Maybe reducing the font size is really the way to go. What does it mean when 
you say, Manuel is off-list? Did he stop contributing to lfs? This would 
really be a pitty :(
