Absolutly, yes. I used a short script to run a "master" profile with nALFS.
The advantage for me is, I have a master profile for installing new kernel.
When a new kernel comes out, you have to recompile alsa, bttv and some
other kernel dependend packages.
And think of the different installation posibillities, LFS with Lilo/Grub,
LFS with devfs/MAKEDEV, LFS with gawk/mawk.
It's faster to change the links than to search the entries and modify them.
I hope, this is the next item on the todo-list.
