Interesting. I have a server LFS+BLFS plus a load of "glue" that is not 
in the BLFS book. Sadly I started before the jhalfs tool came along so I 
used nALFS for my build. Still do, as no time to change. I thought 
jhalfs just built from the book so I didn't understand how you'd use it 
for blfs but as I say I haven't had time to investigate.
