I believe that URL needs to be removed, as it is obviously pointing to a 
very old version of the book (SVN-0.0.1-20061204) and the 3.0 book is 
available from the website, however there are systemd and sysvinit 
versions of it available with their own URLs.


If there are people who want to build a 10 year old version of CLFS, I 
can make sure it shows up in the CLFS museum at http://archive.clfs.org/.

It is a long story, but basically cross-lfs.org is no longer in the 
projects possession, and so we have had to migrate over to clfs.org.  We 
hope to get it back one day, but for now the website shown on 
cross-lfs.org is not ours, and not owned by us.
