It doesn't really "transform" into anything, which is part of the point
of it all.  Take a look at a profile out of the cvs; take a few nights
and speed read over the mailing list archives for alfs; read the whole
website (it's not alot I know but it does say somthing).  It is a
platform independent way of describing how to build a system from
source.  A parser written to grok a profile whould know how to execute
the right commands.
