This problem was discussed in
http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/ticket/2364

and solved in
http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/changeset/8836

However, the only direct reason listed for moving inetutils before perl
was so that the perl testsuite would use inetutils' hostname.

So this email serves both as a bugreport for the dependencies page, and
documentation that the move is indeed necessary or you get the following
snipped diff during an ICA test:
