Yes there is. I took a script originally started by Firerat and extended it=
 and kept it up-to-date.=0A=
The script for LFS is at=A0 https://github.com/JohnBurrell/LFS-BuildScripts=
Read the README and see if it's what you want. It's mainly designed to inst=
all LFS using MSB's package-user management system but I extended it to ena=
ble you to install LFS as root - script version of jhalfs if you like.=0A=
The BLFS version is at BLFS-BuildScripts on github. That one is a bit old b=
ut I can update it to be in sync with what I have now.=0A=
Recently I've been playing with systemd so both the LFS and the BLFS script=
s will install using systemd as an option.=0A=
The BLFS script is getting rather large - it's over 8000 lines so it would =
take you a while to get into it. You might want to take the bare bones and =
write your own version.=0A=
