jhalfs experimental BLFS part: Optional "sudo make install" and SRC_ARCHIVE ?

Would it be possible to make the "sudo" optional for the install 
commands in BLFS?
I know the scripts will have to be run as root (or user with installing 
privilege), which may be risky, but it's the only way I can make Paco 
work with BLFS. It's not possible to log suid programs. :(

It would also be excellent if the BLFS part would honour the SRC_ARCHIVE 
set in the common/config file. It works nicely with HLFS and LFS, but I 
can see the packages are handled a bit different in BLFS.
