Only a few problems with doing that. Not everyone who builds a LFS 
systems does so with a x86. Personaly ive done it with x86, PPC and I'm 
working on a Alpha build. Hell, someone was even doing it on an Amiga. 
Part of doing Chapter 5 and such is learning about the system and 
learning how everything has to work together.

That would work if you were doing LFS for a bunch of systems or making 
your own distro tho.
