In CLFS-embeded there is no option to compile more packages after booting: 
there is no build tools installed on the final system. Thus the use of 
CUSTOM_TOOLS is the unique way for installing additional packages.

Yes, the pre-made blfs-deps and custom build scripts don't work as-is on that 
books. But IMHO a note in the proper *-README files discussing that those 
script are designed for an LFS system based on Glibc and that will need be 
fixed by the user to work with other books should be enough.
