I don't know about multiple builds but remote build is definitely
needed. I have a friend to whome I would like to build an LFS system.
She is a real newbie and don't know much. Now the situation is that I
can't go to girl's dorms :P. And I hate to do a line by line install
on ssh. I would definitely like to have a remote build. Yeah, there
are many more alternatives. But this is one of them isn't it?
