It's in the change log:

[ken] - Remove redundant sed from automake.

me - Apply upstream patches to make.
      Install both .tab files from tzdata.
      Add instructions to Chapter 5 glibc to add rpc headers
      Add patch to fix glibc (Chapter 6)

I think it's fairly unlikely that you would run into any of these issues.
