Actually, Rui, $LFS is anything you want. According to the book:

This book will assume that the partition was mounted under /mnt/lfs. It
doesn't matter which directory is chosen, just make sure you remember
what you chose.


Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of
authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made
to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are
men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They
promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
