My builds are done from an ALFS profile parented to the "official" one, 
but with local changes (mostly additional configure options and 
additional packages). For the vast majority of BLFS packages that I 
build, I use the standard instructions. Then again, I've yet to build X 
or anything on top of it on any of my LFS systems, so that removes a 
large part of BLFS from my testing :-)
