Retrofitting LFS 6.1?

Hi, all,

I just started reading the HLFS docs, having recently built an LFS 6.1 system
and noted the LFS 6.0+ requirement for host system.

Quick question:  How much work would be involved in retrofitting an LFS 6.1
system to hardening to HLFS specs (as opposed to doing the complete rebuild
procedure documented in the book)?
