   There is a pretty good definition of the command line switches in the 
built-in help.  ./lfs --help

   Unfortunately I am too close to the code and don't see the 
ambiguities in the help file or the README. ( I am working on it)

   I introduced the usage of config files to reduce the command line 
typing and allow the user to hard code some variables. ie. SRC_ARCHIVE 
is meant to point to your local repository (the big disk with all the 
tarballs you have been collecting over the years :-) ) That is a 
set-and-forget variable. -G can be set to "1" since downloading is 
necessary to populate up the $BUILDDIR/sources directory. A value of "0" 
allows jhalfs to create all the necessary files and you can explore 
jhalfs to your hearts content without having to download a few hundred 
meg of files.
