That is what I am waiting on.
I want to finalize on what LFS 7.4 and then I need to build a server and 
some KDE desktops.
That way I can "freeze" my rpm systems on LFS-7.4 and then I can have a 
go at BLFS.
I am using the last nite SVN version of LFS calling that 7.4.rc2, that 
way when 7.4 finally comes out I am not too far off the mark.
With all the upstream packages coming out at a non sensical pace I 
ignore that ( mostly because all the newer versions don't really change 
much I only see that as version number bumping ) and just find something 
that works.
