Sorry about not being clear... I was thinking from a profile stand
point.  jhlfs is not made to have a profile base,  ergo you would not be
able to easily buld a automated custom lfs system.  if you wanted
somthing different you would have to make up your own lfsbook and point
jhlfs to that.  if i understand how jhlfs works. Im purely thinking from
a automated standpoint.  granted the current nalfs program some times
seems like that its self.

I was not fully realising the build from ground up point.  last i had
heard it was going to be nalfs2.0 though i may have missed som stuff due
to my move.
