It will be set like BLFS_XML, i.,e., the value is configured in the 
installation menuconfig,  then a sed command in ./blfs set the value 
in ./, that will create a "TRACKING_DIR=/selected/path" in 
configuration file.

That implies that ./ will need to source also configuration, 
but that can allow to set more common settings with ./, if any, 
into configuration file.

No, asking only due that that is was remain to have working the menuconfig and 
will could allow to remove the command line parsing from ./ ;-)

After having the TRAKING_DIR change ready I will see how to add the installed 
version to the updated packages into
