Not sure why my mobile messages aren't reaching the list, but as already 
stated, please use Thomas's book in the future. It's still a partially 
manual merge process, but Thomas has done a great job integrating the 
changes directly into chapter5/6 and has been keeping it up to date with 
trunk, with only a little lag. It's built in-line and as mentioned, is 
kept up to date with a much better frequency than I was able to do.  The 
Chapter 10 that you found is there only by chance and is really old 
(August 2018 - I didn't clean the target directory before extracting the 
new copy). I won't remove it immediately, but it will go away 
eventually, probably with 9.0 in September, so get your notes together, 
maybe put it up in the LFS wiki if you think it still valuable. I did 
have a patch for jhalfs that was relatively simple for Thomas's build, 
but it's went away with last cleanup, but was not difficult. I think all 
I had to do was to expand the glibc-* target so that the multiple builds 
were possible, but with the multiple copies of the book, amd64+i686/x32, 
it has to be expanded again to cope. I'll take a stab at adding it back 
this weekend if somebody else hasn't already.
