Comment (by Krejzi):

 Just curious, what benefit would this package give to BLFS users?

 From the url above:

 "UNetbootin allows you to create bootable Live USB drives for Ubuntu,
 Fedora, and other Linux distributions without burning a CD."

 You can create a bootable drive for any of the distros listed above by
 simply using "dd" or "cat" on the usb drive. I think this package is
 mostly meant for Windows, OSX users and Linux newbies who are not that
 familiar with the console. The "being familiar with the console" is a
 prerequsite for LFS, so I think the package doesn't have a real use here.

 Do you have something else in mind with this package than the things I
 mentioned above?

 Syslinux is nice though, I am using it as a replacement for grub for some
 time now.
