The only problem is - when a new package version comes out, that'd have
to be compiled on the same system...  For something with as much diverse
software in as I hope BLFS will have, I'm not convinced of the value of
build times.

Let's see what other reaction there is.  The offer is definately
appreciated though.

(PS - have you looked at the full list of packages we're planning to use
at ?)
