Want to contribute

I have already thought about package management and don't want to turn LFS
into a gentoo clone. I understand what you mean though. Any Linux system
must be upgradeable and manually pulling 200 packages simply isn't possible.
Honestly I mainly see three reasons to use lfs: to make an embedded system,
to make a new distribution, and to learn how Linux works. Any other use, in
my opinion, is simply outside of the scope of LFS. Honestly I started
messing with LFS because I plan on writing a Linux based os, but it's not
what I would call a typical Linux distribution. Anyway, I decided I would
help out LFS in the process by updating ALFS to make building raw systems,
new distros, and bootable cd images a breeze.

I think this is great. I myself had some interesting challenges getting
jhalfs to run on my machine. I applaud any efforts further to automate
building [B]LFS. May I suggest, as you proceed on to your quest, that
you give at least passing thought to adding hooks for some sort of
package management?
