 I have no interest in this, but it looks like the sort of thing that
might have fitted into a hint, so perhaps you could put it in the
wiki (dunno, maybe packages not in BLFS don't fit there).

 Among other things, to get into the book you need to engage an
editor's interest.  I find it hard to see why anyone would use a
"desktop" without X nowadays.

 A few comments on packages:

 mc is in BLFS, I think

 I used to use mpg321, but now that mpg123 seems to be maintained
again (I'm using 1.5.1 in my current build) I'm sure you can either
use that or make a symlink to it.

 I hope you won't be running the daemon

 *cough* vim is in LFS itself
