We could use some help yes, although I think the biggest parts of the 
BLFS-profile are in place. I had even started a (quite succesfull) 
testbuild, but I ran out of diskspace and I had to remove my 
LFS-partition. The biggest problems we still have are IMO:
- no support for dependency-checking in nALFS (but that's something we 
can't change)
- a lack of configurability in the profile
- outdated packages

The last problem can be tackled very easyly, but it takes a lot of work. 
The second one needs to be looked at and thougt about. I would make that 
a feature for the next release of the profile (BLFS-profile-6.x, or 
maybe BLFS-profile-6.0-1). We'll see.
