That is easy. Remove this code from blfs.xsl (inside the "screen" tenplate 
near the end of the file):

          <xsl:if test="@role = 'root'">
            <xsl:text>sudo </xsl:text>

That is more diffult to solve due an issue with patches management. I will see 
what could be done when starting the BLFS code depuration (after finish the 
CLFS code review that I will start tomorrow).
