It is mentioned in section 9.3 of the book.  It might be nice to
mention it in the final
jhalfs screen also.

A technique I use is to exit chroot and copy the configuration files
from the host
to /mnt/lfs/etc.  This probably is only useful when going from lfs ->
lfs but other
useful files include passwd, group, and shadow as well as root's
.bash_profile and
.bashrc.  A simple bash script may be helpful here.

If building ssh in chroot, you may want to copy the sshd keys from the host
to the new system too.
