I agree with Hui Zhou on this one. I know nALFS is going into maintenance
mode but adding a --ingnore-md5 option wouldn't be that hard to do and
would be a sufficient enough improvement for it to be added.
The unpacking based on file extension is also a good idea and would fix
many a newcomers problems. Looking back through the mail archive there are
references to people using the wrong tarballs so I think this is again,
sufficient enough excuse to add it.
As for parallel builds, that should be left up to the user IMO.
BTW - I've not been around for the last couple of days on IRC because I'm
fighting with a x86_64 LFS build and its winning at the moment. I'll be
back by the end of the weekend though.
