It's not as hard as it may first appear. I'll be glad to coach you through it. 
First step is to install CVS on your machine. Second is to check out the BLFS 
source. I have the command around here... on my other machine. I'll send it 
to you, and we can take this off list.

But you're right, it would be best to have some good documentation on this.
