Rumor has it that Thomas Pegg may have mentioned these words:

I'll give it a try... but I couldn't find any wget scripts that would get
over 1/2 of the schtuff to build a stable LFS, which is why I went with the
I tried compiling nALFS 1.2.3 but it died horribly, with and without my
specialized compiler flags for my Crusoe laptop... if 1.2.2 will work then
there's no worries -- I'll put more info into another post.
If the wget gets everything, I'll post a webpage with a tarball for those
who want to be able to get everything in one pop.

I'd be pairing that box with a couple of *really fast* SCSI drives to try
to drop that figure down a bit... ;-)
Speaking thereof -- has anyone thought about making a "big-ram" nALFS
script that untars everything to a RAMdrive and compiles it from there? I
did this (by hand) originally when compiling my first LFS (4.0 -- #9350)
setup & it improved the compile speed by a fair margin, IIRC (altho I
didn't actually *benchmark* it).
Maybe when I learn more about this, I'll have to do a little
