Binary Packages.

Here's a question that I've been pondering for a while which I thought 
you guys might humour me with an answer to.

I know that LFS is all about gaining control of your linux, so all 
software is compiled from source. However, there are a few packages 
which I need for work which are not open source (the best example is 
Maple). So, if I want to install Maple I can't compile it myself.

Is there an LFS policy for this situation?

Cheers all
