 In LFS:

  It is also a good idea to create a file to show the status of your new
 system with respect to the Linux Standards Base (LSB). To create this
 file, run:

 cat > /etc/lsb-release << "EOF"
 DISTRIB_ID="Linux From Scratch"
 DISTRIB_CODENAME="<your name here>"

 If someone does not do that, after installing in BLFS (no mention to
 configuration, there):

 $ lsb_release -a
 LSB Version:    n/a
 Distributor ID: n/a
 Description:    7.5-rc1
 Release:        n/a
 Codename:       n/a

 If the configuration was done in LFS:

 $ lsb_release -a
 LSB Version:    n/a
 Distributor ID: Linux From Scratch
 Description:    Linux From Scratch
 Release:        7.5-rc1
 Codename:       lfs-jhalfs
