XML::Parser re-added in Ch. 06, but package is not listed in Ch. 03 - All Packages

Recently, XML::Parser-2.42_01 was re-added to the build. In Ch. 06, it shows instructions for building XML::Parser-2.42_01. However, the XML::Parser package is NOT listed in Ch. 03 with all of the other necessary packages. This really confused me, as I was using jhalfs to build the latest development version of the LFS book, and I kept hitting an error when it tried to build the XML::Parser package. Doing some digging, I could not find the XML::Parser package. So I started digging in the LFS source, and found that XML::Parser was added back to the packages.ent file, but it still was not showing up in the Packages list for Ch. 03. So I looked in the chapter03/packages.xml file, and found that the XML::Parser package was still commented out. By uncommenting the XML::Parser package, it now shows in the Ch. 03 All Packages list, and jhalfs also correctly pulls the XML::Parser package.
