The way if works in some cases is to build #1, then #2, and then #1

LFS has an FTP client. Also, once you have sshd running, you can use a
remote system with a full blown window manager through ssh.

Consider fluxbox or metacity before Gnome. One of the problems with
Gnome is that it requires a lot of builds just to start a minimal system.
