Noob questions: ELF binaries, a.out, and xmkmf

I decided to be a good boy and read the prerequisites listed in the LFS 

I just finished the howto on compiling software and I have some questions.

What are "ELF Binaries"?

If I follow the LFS book with modern hardware will I ever need to deal 
with ELF binaries, a.out binaries, or using xmkmf to make my own make files?

Just curious.

If this post is not of proper form I haven't gotten to the hint in the 
prerequisites yet :).   Going in top down order :)
