I have already developed a pretty stable HLFS (ie. I have not found a 
bug yet...).

Have a look at

Basically it is based on HLFS SVN-20060717 with kernel updated to and grsecurity
updated to 2.1.9-

There are a few bugs fixed in the book. It would be a matter of a few 
hours to list them here in
the mailing list.

It has a lot of features added and lots of packages from BLFS run on it 
with no problem at all,
including XOrg, XFCE, Firefox, postfix, fcron, etc. Of course for a base 
HLFS we don't need
those packages.

A slightly older version (however with little change) has been running 
for over half a year on
a production server. No problems either.

If there is any interest, I could post those changes!
