Yes, the BLFS stuff is available anonymously. Once you've completed
something, you'll need to submit it to Mark. There's a README in CVS
that explains the programs you'll need, and how to install them, etc.,
but if you've already done some LFS
stuff, you probably know all that? I have to admit that I haven't done
LFS proper, so am guessing a bit here. Last I checked there was one part
of the README that was incorrect, but that was a while back. Maybe Mark
can tell us if it got fixed?

I think you just substitute BLFS for LFS in the cvs command... I would
look the exact command up for you, but you've got me at a bit of a
disadvantage right now -- I've just wiped out my RedHat /usr filesystem
in order to have more room for my LFS system, so I don't have the cvs
program or man pages installed just now.
