Are you/we missing something here?

The LFS book, is in XML, the BLFS book is in XML...  they already describe in 
more than enough detail how the packages are built.

How much work would there be in modifying the book XML sources to be parsable 
directly by a ALFS parser, or even transformed to ALFS syntax?

I realise that the actual <configure> <make> stuff might be too far to go 
within the book source but the command set could be extracted from a <code> 
tag, or whatever is used there (sorry been away a while).  Download locations
etc. can easily be lifted, and an estimated time to build calculated etc. etc.

Anyone have any thoughts?
