Well, I suppose it would be, as you are not actually building LFS
anymore. I wouldn't do what you are attempting. I would rebuild the
system from scratch. But that is just me. I've just heard of too
many "bad things" that have happened by attempting this. Best case
"bad thing" is a system that is quirky. Worst case "bad thing" is
that you end up with an unusable system.

YMMV.
