In CLFS we give the user the option to either download the data (which  
requires /etc/resolv.conf to be setup in chroot and networking  
available and configured from the host or during the boot method) or  
use a patch which fixes the issue.

Since the problem is that the IANA site likes to change things quite  
common, the patch is usually preferred.
