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.
