Comment (by martyj19):

 I am the one who instigated the --disable-ifconfig after discovering that
 1.5 started shipping ifconfig.  There will be a ticket in the closed LFS
 tickets.  The clobber took me by surprise and I also learned that the
 inetutils version of ifconfig does not work with the usage of it in dhcp.

 Clearly a BLFSer could decide to use either as they saw fit.

 As I understand it, LFS decided that they didn't need ifconfig at all
 since they use ip in their bootscripts.
