BLFS-CVS -- Confused about instructions!

Hi.. I have built my lfs sytem a few times now and got everything to work correctly but wanted the cutting edge software.. So far I finished the LFS book and now onto the BLFS and some of the instructions are not makeing any sense at all.

At the config part on that page is first asks you to do this:
To configure dhcpcd, we need to first install the network service script, 

/etc/sysconfig/network-devices/services/dhcpcd included in the lfs-bootscripts package.

make install-service-dhcpcd
Now maybe its just me but.. I went into the lfs-bootscripts source directory and there is no way to issue the make command (in any of its directorys).. and issueing it inside of the dhcpd source directory does not do anything either.

In the begining of the BLFS book it has this in the important info section:
The lfs-bootscripts package will be used throughout the BLFS the book for startup scripts. 
Unlike LFS, each init script has a seperate install target in the lfs-bootscrits package.
 It is recomended you keep the package source directory around until completion of your BLFS system.
 When a script is requested from lfs-bootscritps, simply change to the directory and execute the given make install-<init-script>
What directory? -- and I kept the bootsripts directory around... and even untar'ed it again to make sure it was all there....

Is this instructions for a later version of the lfs-bootscripts or am I missing something here?

Right now the bootscripts Im using is 1.12 which is the version in lfs-cvs book.

The bootscripts changed recently (see the news item here ) so the scripts that used to be in the BLFS book are now in the lfs-bootscripts-2.0.2 bundle

Thanks for replying.. wonder why they changed all those install instructions but didnt bother to change the package in the lfs or at least mention that in the blfs book.
