Ahh, OK, I had missed that part of your message. That would mean
creating some type of "temporary" filesystem on a local disk, which
would then have to be removed once the real build was completed, right?
The only other option that I see would be to download this minimal
system (really it would be a base LFS plus nALFS) and then do a new
build over the top of it, but I've never been comfortable attempting that.
