I agree.  BLFS should keep the format it is using.  Man y of the 
libraries are a simple configure && make && make install, but there are 
other packages that are quite complicated.  I feel the BLFS is part 
learning, part HOWTO, and part reference.  LFS is going to primarily 
learning and I think that is very appropriate.  When you graduate to 
BLFS, the explainations should be less detailed at the basic level and 
concentrate on more advanced issues.
