I just show what is necessary to modify when using official BLFS book. I
think I have missed cups though, I need to correct that.

Not reinstalled, but rather what (not) to do in order to get the
services to work natively with systemd.

I believe that Pierre said that it's possible, but he has yet to confirm.

I don't think I'd personally like to do that. I might come up with
something else since I disagree with some instructions in the official
book and the systemd book might include modifications for shared, non
init system specific packages.

I might be able to provide patches on top of BLFS 7.5 that just modify
the xml as akh suggested once, but that's still long way to go, so don't
expect much any time soon.
