 7.4 works for me, but it was *painful* getting there - I don't use
hal, and as noted in various bug reports adding the following to my
xorg.conf made it usable:

# for xorg-server-1.5.3, otherwise no keyboard or mouse
Section "ServerFlags"
        Option  "AllowEmptyInput" "false"

 In general, everything in BLFS is tested to work by the editor who
last updated that package.  For some packages, the last update was a
long time ago, well before gcc-4.3.  Anyway, "tested" only means
"I couldn't find any obvious problems".
